    In the preface, which is signed "R. T. T. Florence Heights, N. J.", Trall says, "This work is an explanation of our mode of cooking at "Hygeian Home." For a dozen years past our table for invalids has been prepared without the employment of milk, sugar, salt, yeast, acids, alkilis, grease, or condiments of any kind." The main part of the book is by Trall. Pages 41-59 are an "Appendix on hygienic bread-making, fruit preserving, etc by Mrs Mattie M. Jones" ("Miss" on the title-page is presumably the publisher's error).
