Excerpt from The American Matron: Or Practical and Scientific Cookery

It may be said of the great majority of American families that they feel the want and desire of every thing, and are compelled to earn, for themselves, the fulfilment of their desires and the supply of their wants. This would be a hard lot, were it not that, from the selfsame social peculiarities, intelligence, aactivity, economy, and sagacity are always sufficient unto themselves, and that means well chosen and wisely employed seldom fail to insure all reasonably antici pated ends.

Ah American home is the theatre of the highest hopes and the proudest pretensions; Legislators, Chieftains, judges, presidents, are born et'en' in the humbler ones among them. The most cultivated tastes, the 'best trained intellects, are cradled and educated there, often amid moderate resources, not unlfrequently with stinted and inadequate means, seldom in the abundance of superfluous wealth.
