Here is a classic guide to raising children, keeping house, tending garden, home remedies, entertaining, social etiquette, table manners, recipes & kitchen skills, and murch more--in a fascinating guide first published in 1853.
Great indeed is the task assigned to woman. So begins this useful handbook, originally published in 1853, in which Mrs. L. G. Abell set down literally hundreds of domestic skills to be mastered with economy and grace by any woman wishing to run an efficient home. Light-years ahead of her time, Abell believed solidly in the virtue of the accomplished woman, one who is skilled in the various arts of life, complete in her character, so constituted by her own industry and intelligence. While the arts of life may be defined rather differently today, the overall notion that woman's work is never done remains, and there is plenty of practical information here to aid any busy wife or super mom through her day including:
Tips for marketing and the use of meats
Cures of dozens of maladies from earaches to seasickness
Whitening fabric and removing stains
Setting a proper table
Manners and behavior for children
Fun to browse through, a valuable addition to any home, A Mother's Book of Traditional Household Skills will continue to please generations of women to come.
