Salt herring was a very popular dish, especially among men, whom, a number of them anyway, enjoyed for breakfast, along with the wonderful-tasting (yuck!) kippers. These things today can be found in a can in the tuna section of your grocery store if your up to trying it, a version of it anyway.
] Also, how on earth do you get a hold of all these wonderful sources? You, and lots of other people here, continually amaze me.] I find that a good local library bookstore is a wonderful source of books which someone threw away and never realized the jewel they had. This one in question I found in an antique store and was able to haggle the price down from $18.00 to $10 and get another book which was published in 1811 Virginia to boot! I bring my mother-in-law with me to antique store and used book stores because she is a pro at haggling, and always manages to buy something at less than half the asking price - and without even paying the taxes! She is a jewel to have around.
