Related Names: Conway, Moncure Daniel 1832-1907.
Language(s): English ; French
Published: New York, United States book company [c1890]
Subjects: Etiquette.
Note: From a manuscript copybook prepared by Washington in 1745. The editor's theory is that the Rules were derived from the oral instruction of Rev. James Marye, supposed to have been Washington's teacher in Fredericksburg, Va. The original source of the Rules appears to have been a French work, first published in 1617, and reprinted in various editions. The present work includes a comparison of the text of Washington's Rules with several editions of the French work, including an English translation.
Entered for copyright in March, 1891.
