Recommended to Robert by: Helen-joe Owens

This was my grandfather's etiquette book. I gather it was used to raise my mother. It usually sits on my desk in my classroom. There is a passage I read to my students each year. Believe it or not, there isn't much in here regarding children. That's because children were thought of differently in 1940. Anyhow, the passage I read likens children to dogs. Seriously!

I find this book helpful for how to respond to social invitations, etc. I attempt to follow proper form in those settings even if others do not.
