About This Item

Check out the table etiquette hints on p 215 such as "Don't use your fork as if it were a pitchfork." Marian Harland, aka Mary Virginia Terhune, was a spunky woman who recovered from tuberculosis, learned to type after breaking her wrist, and dictated her writing to a secretary after becoming blind in her in old age She authored over 25 books on such diverse subjects as "botany" and "the mission work of the Russians in Alaska."
