Artist's Description

The only known reference to a chandler (candle maker) at the Fort occurs in a letter from Sutter to U.S. Consul Thomas Larkin on the 15th of July 1845. As postscript to the letter, Sutter appends a list of immigrants who arrived from Oregon on the 10th of July 1845 along with their occupations. Included on this list is an F. Lichtenstein soapmaker and chandler. The Bancroft Pioneer Register shows a Lightston, Frank, 1845, German soapmaker and chandler, original name Franz Lichtenstein, who came from Oregon in the McMahon Clyman party, in the spring of 1846.
