Mrs. Sherwood's admirable little volume differs from ordinary works on the subject of etiquette, chiefly in the two facts that it is founded on its author's personal familiarity with the usages of really good society, and that it is inspired by good sense and a helpful spirit... We think Mrs. Sherwood's little book the very best and most sensible one of its kind that we ever saw. N. Y. Commercial Advertiser.

It is a sensible and pleasantly written volume, which has already won recognition as one of the best books of its kind, and this new edition is called for by the heartiness with which the public has endorsed the work. Courier, Boston.
A sensible, comprehensive book, which has endured criticism successfully, and deserves now to be regarded the best book of its kind published in this country....

Y.Published by Harper & brothers, New York. Harper and brothers will send the above work by mail, post. age pre-paid, to any part of the United States or Canada, on receipt of the price.
