The growing conviction, that upon the right training of the female character depends the future welfare of mankind, renders any apology unnecessary for the introduction of a work, having for its sole object the
promotion of that desirable end. If it be true, that
“good mothers make good men,” then it must be a subject of paramount importance that the present race
of females should be so trained to mental and moral
excellence, as to give fair grounds of hope that they will indeed prove good mothers to the future generation. To enable them to become such, it is hoped
the present work will not be found entirely destitute
Of the manner in which this pleasing task has been
executed, the public must be the judge: the Author would only solicit a favourable construction as to his
motives, and to assure his fair countrywomen, that to advance their interests, and to promote their
happiness, are amongst the most fervent aspirations
of his heart.
