"When you make a new article always save the pieces until 'mending day' which may come sooner than expected. It will be well even to buy a little extra quantity for repairs. Read over the paragraphs 1749 - 1754 in this volume headed GOLDEN HINTS FOR HOUSEWIVES AND HOME COMFORTS. These contain most valuable suggestions, that will be constantly useful if well remembered. They should be read frequently that their full value be secured. Let your servants also read them, for nothing conduces more to good housekeeping than for the servant to understand the 'system' which her mistress approves of."

Enquire Within upon Everything (1926)
Herbert Jenkins Limited, London, p.426
