Not illustrated. 1841 Excerpt: ...and often render nugatory all the efforts of the schoolmaster. If, on the contrary, she is so well informed as to appreciate and second his exertions, and strives to fix in the minds of her children habits of cleanliness, order, refinement of conduct, and purity of morals, the results will be evident in her wise and well-regulated household. But if, in addition to these qualities, she be richly stored with intellectual and moral treasures, and make it her chief delight to impart them to her offspring, they will, by their lives and conduct, reflect her intelligence and virtues throughout society; for there has seldom been a great or noble character who had not a wise or virtuous mother. Our first ideas are received from a mother's eye, and much of our temper and disposition depends on the characters we trace there; her kindness and benevolence give us peace and joy, but her angry frowns and capricious temper terrify us, and injure our whole infantile system. As our perceptions are awakened and faculties matured, her wise or foolish conduct towards us leaves lasting impressions of good or evil; her habits, conversation, and example are readily imitated, and form the foundation of our future character. Seeing, then, that so much of our early education depends on the mental and moral qualities of women, should we not labour, by every means in our power, to qualify them for these important duties? And when, in addition to these considerations, we take into account horn much of men's happiness depends upon the minds and dispositions of women--how much of comfort, cheerfulness, and affection their intelligence can spread in the most humble home---how many cares their prudence can prevent, and their sympathy and kindness alleviate, it ought to redouble our anxiety ...
