For the King and counsel (Hawkins vol. 32/49)

For the King and counsel. In some places they have swept both the houses and fields, and have not left a woman who lay in, so much as a posnet to boyl some milk for her child [London?, 1664?].
(Library reference: Hawkins vol. 32/49)
This was Volume 14 in Fox’s library. A posnet is a small metal pot with a handle and three feet used for boiling milk etc.
