    The preface gives the author's reasons for writing specifically for English girls in India: "So far the schools in India have been dependent upon books dealing with Domestic Science only from the point of view of people living in England, the consequence being that special Indian needs and conditions are entirely overlooked, while girls are taught points of household management...which they are not able to apply to their everyday life'.
