Excerpt from Every-Day Business for Women: A Manual for the Uninitiated In presenting this little book to the public, I have word of apology, but only one of explanation. Many years' experience with women's societies and boarding-school girls has brought to my attention the appalling igrance of really clever women in matters of every-day business. Women who could discuss theosophy intelligently were puzzled by simple accounts and confused by quit-claim deeds; and some who had large means did t kw all about the checks which they drew so frequently. It was to render the girls under my care more intelligent in these matters that these talks were first prepared; hence the simplicity of statement, and the explanation of even well-kwn technical terms. They are w offered to the larger audience of the uninitiated everywhere, in the hope that they may be of use in dispelling that igrance, which, more than their sex, is the cause of the unfortunate issue of the business affairs of so many women. To my friends in the business world in many directions, I am indebted for helpful suggestions; especially in the banking section.
