From MISS MARY ELLIOTT MCCANDLESS, of Pennsylvania, Lady Manager.
To a pint of cream add half a cupful of powdered sugar and a
teaspoonful vanilla extract; whip it to a stiff froth; dissolve a
quarter of a box of gelatine in two wine glasses of sherry heated, but
not allowed to boil; let this cool a little, then stir into the cream;
pour the whole in a mould and set it on the ice to stiffen.
