Excerpt from Housekeepers and Home-Makers

In presenting this modest volume to my readers, I desire, first of all, to disclaim any intention of book-making when the various chapters were written. They have all appeared in "The Boston Herald;" and it was the unexpected favor which they met from the readers of that journal, and the frequently repeated call for articles that are now out of print, that led to their being embodied in the present permanent form.

I have thought it best not to change them materially; and they stand, for the most part, just as they appeared in the columns of the newspaper. If they have a sort of freedom such as belongs to the family, it is because they were written for family use. The endeavor was, from the beginning, to give to housekeepers just such information as they most needed, particularly if they were inexperienced. If I have done this in any measure, I shall feel that my work has not been in vain.

Neither have I said all that there is to say on this topic of housekeeping. To do that were an impossible task, as the subject is inexhaustible.
