Excerpt from Ten Dollars Enough: Keeping House Well on Ten Dollars a Week; How It Has Been Done; How It May Be Done Again
It is very pleasant to learn from these same letters that the writers have tried Molly's recipes with such success, there being, I am assured by the same gentle man, but two exceptions (and one of these candidly says the fault might be her own) among the large number who expressed satisfaction.
This testimony is especially gratifying, showing, as it does, how earnest and faithful my readers have been; for, although the directions were minutely given and every effort made to meet difficulties, all my care would not have sufficed to produce success, had there not been faithful co'operation on the part of those who followed them. I take this opportunity to make clear two mat ters which, I found early in the course Of the story, were lost sight of by two or three readers, perhaps others.
I allude to the prices of provisions and the amount of cooking accomplished in a given time.
