The business of a Tallow-chandler consists in making candles of suet or fat, and in selling them after they are made. In the country the trade of a tallow-chandler and soap boiler are frequently combined, in London more rarely. The business of a Cabinet-maker, and that of an Upholsterer, is now so generally united together, that any observations on either of these branches may, with propriety, be comprehended under one general head.
