“Don’t sharpen pencils all over the house as you walk about. Try a hearth or wastepaper basket, or a newspaper. It does not improve either carpets or the servants’ temper to find scraps of pencil shapenings all over the floor.”


Blanche Ebbut, “Don’ts For Husbands’, A&C Black Ltd., London, 1913. ISBN 9780713687910
