Her plaint, of course, is that there is no such thing as a quiet half hour!
Wages of Domestic Servants (GOP, 1901)

A look back at the early part of the 19th century...

The conclusion to the series on curious inscriptions on historic British houses.
The Cakes of Other Climes (GOP, 1893)
This is a charming look at different types of cakes and their "occasions" in other countries - more of a cultural roundup than a recipe collection.

Douglas lives a leisurely life in the country, yet carries his home on his back... which makes sense, as he is a tortoise!

Chronicles of an Anglo-Californian Ranch, Part 4 (GOP, 1899)
Another British family sallies forth into the New World to seek its fortune, this time in southern California, not far from the "busy and enterprising town of Los Angeles." Hard work, they find!
Recipes for March (GOP, 1896)
Sultana Pudding, Orange Marmalade and Rhubarb Compote all sound good, but I absolutely have to try "Chestnut Soup"!
Afternoon Tea-Cakes (GOP, 1891)
Lemon Cakes, Cocoa-Nut Cakes, Cocoa Cones, and Almond Croquettes are just a few of the tempting dainties in this article.
Our Soirée Musicale (CFM, 1874)
