THE EBOOK OF GOOD MANNERS
A MANUAL TO POLITE USAGE FOR ALL SOCIAL FUNCTIONS
THE EBOOK OF GOOD MANNERS is a complete and authentic authority
on every single phase of social usage as practiced in America. The author
has compiled the matter in dictionary form in order to give the reader the
desired information as briefly and clearly as possible, and with the least
possible effort in searching through the pages.
ACCEPTING OR DECLINING INVITATIONS. See INVITATIONS, ACCEPTING OR DECLINING.
ACCIDENTS. See STREET ETIQUETTE--MEN--ACCIDENTS.
ADDRESS. The address of a person may be stamped on the stationery.
If the address is stamped, it is not customary to stamp also the crest or monogram.
MEN. A man should be addressed as Mr. James J, Wilson, or James J. Wilson, Esq. Either the Mr. or the Esq. may be used, but not the two together.
The title belonging to a man should be given. It is not customary to use Mr. or Esq. when Jr. or Sr. is used.
WOMEN. A woman's name should always have the Miss or Mrs.
A woman should never be given her husband's official title, as Mrs. Judge Wilson.
If a woman has a title of her own, she should be addressed as Dr. Minnie Wilson, when the letter is a professional one. If a social letter, this should be Miss Minnie Wilson, or Mrs. Minnie Wilson.
ADDRESSING PERSONS. Young girls should be spoken f as Minnie Wilson, and not as Miss Minnie, but are personally addressed as Miss Minnie. Only the greatest intimacy warrants a man in addressing a young girl as Minnie.
Parents should introduce their daughter as My daughter Minnie, but should speak of them before servants as Miss Minnie.
A married woman should be spoken of as Mrs. Agnes Wilson, and personally addressed as Mrs. Wilson.
ADDRESSING AND SIGNING LETTERS. All answers to invitations should be addressed to the party issuing them.
Letters to a woman who is a comparative stranger may begin My dear Mrs. Wilson, and to a closer acquaintance Dear Mrs. Wilson.
Letters to a man who is a comparative stranger may begin My dear Mr. Wilson, and to a closer acquaintance Dear Mr. Wilson.
For forms of addressing persons with titles, as Mayor, see under that title--as, Mayor, Governor.
The letters may end, Sincerely yours, or Very truly yours, or I remain yours with kindest regards.
The signature of a man should be John J. Wilson or J. Jones Wilson.
An unmarried woman should sign social letters as Minnie Wilson, and a business letter as Miss Minnie Wilson. A married woman should sign a social letter as Agnes Wilson. In signing a business letter, a married woman may either sign her name Mrs. Agnes Wilson, or, preferably,
(Mrs. John Wilson)
AFTERNOON CALLS. These should be made between three and half-past five, and if possible on regular at home days.
In making an afternoon call a man should wear the regulation afternoon dress.
DRESS--MEN. Afternoon dress consists of a double-breasted frock coat of dark material, and waistcoat, either single or double- breasted, of same, or of some fancy material of late design. The trousers should be of light color, avoiding of course extremes in patterns.
White or delicate color linen shirts should be worn, patent leather shoes, silk hat and undressed kid gloves of dark color.
Afternoon dress is worn at weddings, afternoon teas, receptions, garden parties, luncheons, church funerals, and at all afternoon functions.
