Familiar talk with my fellow housekeeper:

I think my favourite part was
... that every young woman should, before fixing the wedding-day, be compelled by law to exhibit to inspectors a prescribed number of useful articles as her outfit—napery, bed-linen, clothing, etc., made by her own hands, and that it would be wise legislation which should add to these proofs of her fitness for her new sphere a practical knowledge of housework and cookery.

Greetings -

That is a great quote from the book with a good balance of sincerity and sarcasm.

This section is PL OK and the MW has been updated.

Section 13 has just one item that might need to be changed:

Time: 19:25 "if you have it,—the juice of a lemon, and a little nutmeg" Reading has "lime" instead of "lemon".

Wow. I did not realize that putting up hams and pork was so much work. Sure makes going to the store and getting a nice, spiral-cut ham sound so much easier. Lots of brown sugar, molasses, or maple syrup glaze, please.

Uploaded for spot check. One word change at 19:25.
