Table of Contents:
1 Cicer arietinum of the botanists.
2 "Gigni cum salsilagine." It abounds in India, and while blossoming, it distils a corrouive acid, which corrodes the shoes of those who tread upon it.
3 There are still the red and the white kinds, the large and the small.
4 Cicercula: the Lathyrus sativus of Linnæus. It is difficult to cook, and hard of digestion. See c. 26.
5 This must be said in reference to some of the pease when in a dried state.
