    1. This work is dedicated by these three cookery teachers (probably a mother and two daughters, or three sisters) to 'The Ladies who honoured our School with their attendance', and the dedication is followed by a list of subscribers. Only two of the many receipts are medicinal; one for rheumatism, the other an alleged cure for the bite of a mad dog.
