LONGMAN, BROWN, GREEN, AND LONGMANS,
THE SECOND EDITION.
THIS book has been written for the young and inexperienced mother. It is intended to furnish her with that information which the observation of some years convinces the author, young mothers, almost without any exception, do not possess; and yet, from ignorance of which- unavoidable indeed the constitution of many an infant has received irretrievable injury, and life itself but too frequently fallen a sacrifice.
Presuming that the principles and directions laid down in this book are sound, it is believed that the young parent taking it as her guide, will avoid the evils referred to, and save herself much mental misery.
