those of houses that are outdoors, ones [that are] a bit sandy seem to hold better in fire

Tiles with which one covers houses, the hardest and surest and recleaned of stones & large gravel, are taken to mix in with the sand for molding. But, rather, it is necessary to reheat them just until they have been quite red for one or two hours, and crush them and pass them finely through a sieve.

Little turtles just out of the egg are really delightful to mold.
