    I am now the proud owner of a first edition of this book, published in Boston in 1875 On page 68 the chapter about Visiting I found a carefully cut out column from a very, very old newspaper, apparently used as a bookmark At first, I wondered if the lady who had made it all the way to Chapter VII was planing a journey There were listings for railway departures to Atlantic City, Cape May, Sea Isle City and Ocean City and an advertisement from the Phila Reading Ry boasting Engines Burn Hard Coal No Smoke followed by a time table for trains to New York But then I turned the newspaper clipping over and the poem I found gave me this tantalizing clue about why so many, many years ago, a young woman who lived in Boston might have started reading this book, and then perhaps, set it aside Here is the first verse of five I ve jest come here a visitin my daughter f r a spell She lives upon an anvenoo n talks of bein swell.We al ays called her Susan Jane, but here t me says she I m Mrs James Delancy Smythe that s so high toned y see.Somehow, it seems t ve turned her head t come down here n live, N talkin of her country home s a thing she won t f rgive,That she s almost ashamed of me n I m her mother, too.The book itself provides an interesting window into late 19th century manners It is full of sensible advice, some of which is still useful A lady is never so well dressed as when you cannot remember what s...

    What an interesting read There are some very insightful looks in to the past Some make you wish for the days of yore when common courtesy and manners were expected Other advice makes you very grateful for the 21st century.

    As someone with a highly romanticised view of the world, and a love for antiquated etiquette, I greatly enjoyed this book It offers a wonderful look into the social expectations and mishaps of the nineteenth century, and at times affords one a slight giggle at a few of the do s and don t s Some of the chapters namely those on marriage and courting did not feel relevant at all to myself, however to others at the marriage point in their lives, I m sure there may be a few pointers or even just brief tidbits of history one might find interesting Sections such as those on let...
