Haushaltsgedanken im Original

Ein Nachtrag zum gestrigen Blog-Eintrag:

To most German Hausfraus the dinners and the puddings are of paramount importance, and they pride themselves on keeping those parts of their houses that are seen in a state of perpetual and spotless perfection, and this is exceedingly praiseworthy; but, I would humbly inquire, are there not other things even more important? And is not plain living and high thinking better than the other way about? And all too careful making of dinners and dusting of furniture takes a terrible amount of precious time, and – and with shame I confess that my sympathies are all with the pudding and the grammar.
