Excerpt from Progressive Housekeeping: Keeping House Without Knowing How, and Knowing How to Keep House Well

A series of papers on housekeeping is a very easy thing to project, but very difficult to make really useful to the general public. At first sight it seemed, with so many "Housekeepers' Assistants," "Domestic Cyclopaedias," and household guides whose existence came to ones memory at once, that the last word on the subject must have been said, and the demand for more was only to be accounted for by the fact that the many books with housekeeping titles were too cumbrous in form, and, instead of the many, one book was needed, containing the gist of all, supplemented and illuminated where obscure, by actual and varied experience of author or compiler, who would assist the different classes of housekeepers to adapt the instructions to their own needs.

With this idea in view the writer prepared for weeks of diligent reading and digestion of innumerable books on the subject, and not without some dread of the work.
