Excerpt from The American Matron: Or Practical and Scientific Cookery

The condition of society in America is peculiar, and very distinct from that of the Old World. From the character of our institutions, we have, and can have, few families in very opulent circumstances, and few also in poverty. To our whole people, rich and poor together, the world is open, with all its pleasures, its hopes, and its prizes. The general high standard of education and information enables us all to know and to sympathize with all the fashions, tastes, and luxuries of the wealthiest and most cultivated circles. The general spirit of enterprise, the eager ambition, and the habit of self-respect and confidence, lead our people to pretend to and to seek all that is desirable in comfort, delightful in taste, showy in fashion, or in any way agreeable to ourselves or producing an effect upon others. Hence our social ambition over-taxes our abilities, and our absolute social necessities require, in most cases, an economy careful and judicious, to enable us to satisfy our wants and wishes.
