Good Forcemeat

Good Forcemeat  The receipt (recipe) for To Roast a Shad begins with the words:  Fill the cavity with good forcemeat.   The forcemeat (pictured) was prepared  by taking half a pound of veal, and half a pound of suet cut fine, and beat in a wooden bowl; add a few sweet herbs shred fine, a little mace pounded fine, a small nutmeg grated, a little lemon peel, some pepper and salt, and the yolks of two eggs.
