From the Philadelphia Medical News.

“A noticeable point about this little volume is the commendable absence of technical terms, as the author plainly states that it is for the use of women who are desirous of fulfilling their proper duties of wives and mothers.' Too often, in works of this class, the readers for whom they are intended are confused and led astray by the multiplicity of words and phrases meant rather for the practitioner than the mother, * Altogether the book fulfills the objects for which it was written, and will materially assist the young married woman in the intelligent performance of new duties.” From the Nurse, Boston.

“The style is easy and fascinating. It should be in the hands of every nurse and married woman.' From the Philadelphia Ledger.

“The information is well presented and the arrangement is entirely satisfactory. No essential has been neglected in the composition of this book, which is well adapted for the intended purpose."
