Recipe for White Souse

From the 1856 United States Cook Book: A Complete Manual for Ladies, Housekeepers and Cooks ... with Particular Reference to the Climate and Productions of the United States by William Volmer:

Cut two onions and two carrots in slices, sweat them slowly, for half an hour,in half a pound of fresh butter, without letting the vegetables get yellow, now pour in two quarts of soup-stock, add to the broths two bayleaves, a quarter of a pound of salt bacon, cut into dice, a glass of white wine, a few cloves, several bits of lemon-peel, some who pepper and some salt; this is to be used in the stewing of several kinds of fish.

Can't wait to try it.
