Mrs Beeton needs a home [closed]

"Mrs Beeton" was the featured article on the home page of Wikipedia today, so even though I'd never actually heard of her (or her book) before (I was brought up on ''The Joy of Cooking''), I found her story interesting, and built out a small family tree for her. But I really shouldn't get distracted from what I'm already doing, so if anybody wants to take her and her family on, you're welcome to them.

I actually have copy of "Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management."  It has very interesting tips on things like how to freshen up your black lace.  And it tells you how you should manage your butler and cook, giving quite specific job descriptions. (Really helpful for today's home.)  I'll take her.

I really must download a copy from Project Gutenberg. Maybe I can learn to buttle in case my current job doesn't work out. ;-)

In any case, thank you for being willing to take on Mrs. Beeton. I know she'll be in good hands.

Greg
