This book was used by Sarah Elizabeth Firth at Stafford Place Seminary. This page shows examples of her handwriting. The school focussed on ‘accomplishments’ such as learning music and foreign languages, penmanship, art, embroidery and needlework, and proper manners. These skills were not intended to help middle and upper class girls find a career as it was expected that they would find a suitable husband to support them.
