Twentieth Day of Advent

Engaging servants – This important business is usually thought a pleasing excitement by one class of mistresses, who are constantly changing, and who do not know how to appreciate a good servant; or a dreadful trouble and worry by those who are idle or careless.”

From Beeton’s Every-day Cookery and Housekeeping Book by Mrs Beeton, published in London by Ward, Lock & Tyler, 1872.7.371.
