PREFACE

Towards the end of the work will be found valuable chapters on the "Management of Children," "The Doctor," "Legal Memoranda," which have been contributed by a great physician and an eminent solicitor. I wish here to acknowledge the kind letters and congratulations I have received during the progress of this work, and have only further to add, that I trust the result of the four years' incessant labour which I have expended will not be altogether unacceptable to some of my countrymen and countrywomen.


248, Strand, 1861.

ISABELLA BEETON.
