On Care & Feeding of Husbands

"Whatever may have been the cares of the day, greet your husband with a smile when he returns. Make your personal appearance just as beautiful as possible. Your dress may be made of calico, but neat. Let him enter rooms so attractive and sunny that all the recollections of his home, when away from the same, shall attract him back"

-Thomas E. Hill, Hill's Manual of Social and Business Forms (1881)
