    There are twenty-one separate sections covering all the usual domestic subjects as well as some which are less familiar. "Where to lunch and dine in London' by C.E. Humphry, is of particular interest, and the section "Indian household management' contributed by Agatha Florence James was probably written by Mrs. Eliot James, the author of "A guide to Indian household management'.
