Put in 100 gallons of leys, with the tallow, and light the fire. When the tallow is melted, add the oil, and draw the fire. Let all stand for two hours. Again light the fire, and add 20 gallons of leys. With this the boiling is continued until the soap is about half finished, when 10 gallons more leys is added. During the remainder of the boiling, add, at different periods, the other 10 gallons leys, which will completely finish the soap.
