The original, as you can see, specifies suet, which should be easy 
enough to get. Note that the title specifies beef or mutton, so 
there's no particular reason to assume either the fat or the marrow 
has to be from lambs. If we did it with marrow--it was a long time 
ago--we probably used marrow from  beef marrow bones.

I should revise the version in the Miscellany to read "marrow or lamb 
fat" to make it clear that the marrow or fat need not be from lamb.
