Recipe for making soap.-
A correspondent gives the following recipe for soap making, and adds, that it be worth one thousand dollars in the hands of a selfish person, and the world would have to untie the purse strings to get it, but here it is free gratis:
Take six pounds of potash,
Four pounds of lard,
One fourth a pound of rosin
Beat up the rosin, mix all together well, and set aside for five days. Then put the whole in a ten gallon cask of warm water and stir twice a day for ten days, at the expiration of which time, or sooner, you will have some excellent soap.
it seems to us that every family should make thier own soap in these times of high prices.
Southern Watchman, May 6, 1863 -- page 4
