Written in 1687, and first published in America in 1847 ,The Education of a Daughter is a lively tome filled with both advice we might give today, as well as advice we would tell girls to roundly ignore. With information on educating and raising children, instructions to never enter into conversation and "low familiarity" with servants, why girls need to "have a horror for an uncovered neck," why Christians should "have a horror of impassioned diversions" such as music, and the importance of religious instruction, The Education of a Daughter is a first-hand look into a world very different than our own.
Please note: this book refers to First Nations and Native Americans as "Savages and barbarians," and presents advice to guard children and especially girls from the "discourses of the Calvinists."
