It has been the effort of the young ladies, who have under- taken this work, to send out a book that will combine the practical with the dainty. These receipts have been given by some of the leading Southern epicures; and have been tried and proven. It is the earnest wish that this book may meet with the public's approval ; not only because of its worthy object to assist in the rebuilding of the Sunday School of the Independent Presbyterian Church, but for its own merit. ▲ ▲ A Contents.
