Reader's note

'Preface! I never read a preface it's so prosy!' said a bright eyed, sprightly little girl; 'I want to get at the story' Her object in reading was to be amused. If she had desired to be benefited by what she read, she would have perused the author's preface, in order to understand why he wrote the book. The author, having daughters of his own and having been many years employed in writing for the young, hopes to be able to offer some good advice, in the following pages, in an entertaining way, for girls or misses, between the ages of eight and fifteen. His object is, to assist them in forming their characters upon the best model; that they may become well-bred, intelligent, refined and good; and then they will be ladies in the highest sense! Brush up on your etiquette with this charming antique book! Sure to look stunning on any collector's shelf!
