Cornbread Turkey Stuffing

To make the plain egg bread that is its foundation use a quart of meal, two eggs, one large cup of milk, a level teaspoon of soda and the same of salt.
Make a batter and if it seems too thick add a little water and bake the bread about thirty minutes. To make the stuffing use two parts of the egg bread to one of cold biscuit and to bind it together put in half a cup of butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper, a good sized onion, and a little sage. Mix all well with the water in which turkey or chicken is boiled and stuff the turkey. Make the rest of the stuffing into little cakes, bake them and serve with gravy made from the water in which the turkey was cooked.
