Add the milk in a stream, beating and combining mixture well. In another bowl, beat whites until stiff peaks form, adding cream of tartar as you beat. Stir ¼ of the egg whites into the lemon mixture. Fold in remaining whites gently and thoroughly. Transfer into a 1½-quart soufflê dish, which is lightly greased. Set dish in a deep pan, add boiling water ½ way up sides of dish.
