Mrs Beeton a Proverbs 31-er

Did you know that Mrs Isabella Beeton began the first section of her book on Household Management and cookery with a section on the Mistress of the home which begins by quoting proverbs 31? The book aims to encourage frugal, tasteful living well and is packed with wisdom on how to manage the servants, bring up the kids and produce good old British meals. Nancy Wilson would approve, I reckon.
