Well wash rice, sprinkle it into boiling water and cook gently until all water is absorbed.  Heat milk, in double saucepan if possible, add half-cooked rice and boil gently until it is perfectly soft and of thick creamy consistency.  Should it become too thick before it is really soft, add more milk.  Beat egg, until very light, add half sugar to it.  When rice is cooked, whisk egg in at once, a little at a time.  Then add salt and piece of Crisco size of walnut.  Turn mixture into dish in which it is to be served.  Mix rest of sugar with cinnamon.  Sprinkle this evenly over top of rice.  Put rest of Crisco in small pieces over top of pudding just before it is required.  Place pudding in front of fire, or in oven for second or two, when Crisco, etc., will form a delicious sauce over surface of pudding.
