eBook (PDF), 21 Pages

How those without means may help the poor. Hannah More (1745-1833) was famous for her sixpenny stews and halfpenny printed recipes. Excerpt: He begged his cook might have the recipe, and Mrs. Jones wrote it out for her. She has also been so obliging as to favor me with a copy of all her recipes. And as I hate all monopoly, and see no reason why such cheap, nourishing, and savory dishes should be confined to the parish of Weston, I print them, that all other parishes may have the same advantage. Not only the poor; but all persons with small income may be glad of them. May all who read this account of Mrs. Jones, and who are under the same circumstances, go and do likewise. Two historical poverty patterns are provided by author Dianthe Bells, being the Brefry teapot handle cover, and Chilled to the Bone, a stomach warmer for invalids and those suffering from cold, damp rooms. Notes give a few insights into the daily life of the poor.
