What To Do—What To Wear—What To Say—What To Write. The Correct Thing At Home—At Parties—At Weddings —At Al Public And Private Functions
Every one has a smile and a helping hand for the courteous man or woman, while the rude person, even if mistaken through ignorance, offends everybody. Ordinary politeness is so much governed by custom that it is easy for anyone to learn and use in every-day life; and all these rules are given in this book sensibly as practised by the best society. The etiquette of conversation, parties of all kinds, visiting, receiving guests, weddings, funerals, and all private and public occasions, is made clear and easy to follow with confidence. There are also valuable instructions in the art of letter-writing, and what to wear on all occasions.
