Excerpt from Miss. Leslie's Lady's House-Book: A Manual of Domestic Economy, Containing Approved Directions for Washing, Dress-Making, Millinery, Dyeing, Cleaning, Quilting, Table-Linen
It has Eben the design of the author to make her directions as plain and intelligible as p... ossible, and therefore she has thought it best to explain every particular with unusual minute ness, as if addressed to persons who were totally ignorant of the subjects in question. In this, as in her Cookery Book, she has not scrupled, when necessary, to sacrifice the sound to the sense; repeating the same words when no others could be found to express the purport so clearly; and being always more anxious to convey the meaning in such terms as could not be mistaken, than to risk obscuring it by attempts at refined phraseology or well-rounded periods.
