Vintage Advice for Travellers

"Take with you, from home, all the writing and sewing materials you may require while [travelling]. . . scissors, pins, meedles, or paper; no lady should be without her own portfolio and work-box."
--Florence Hartley, The Ladies' Book of Etiquette, and Manual of Politeness
