    • Excerpt from letter to the editor from N.G. Avent to "THE HOME", a Pittsboro weekly paper.

      VOL IV - 46 No. Thursday, October 27, 1887

      "What to Teach the Girls":
      "... a thorough education, to cook, and prepare food , wash, iron and darn stockings, sew on buttons and make their own dresses, to make bread and that a good kitchen lessen the doctor's account....to be thrifty, that a calico dress, paid for fits better than a silk one unpaid for...good common sense, self help and industry.... that an honest young man in his working dress is a better object of esteem than a dozen fine dressed idlers..... teach them gardening and the pleasure of nature... that the happiness of matrimony depends neither on outward appearances nor on wealth, but on the MAN'S CHARACTER."
