Our Home: Or, The Key to a Nobler Life
The reader will notice that we have confined ourselves in the treatment of this work almost exclusively to what is termed the "scientific method." We have not only regarded home itself as an institution of nature, but in the treatment of almost every subject we have tried to involve the exposition of some related natural law, because every relation of the home life is an outgrowth of some law of our nature or of our surroundings. It has been our aim to make this book a scientific treatise on the various phases of the home, and in this respect, so far as we know, it stands alone. - Preface.
