I really would love to get this book:
The Housekeeping Book of Susanna Whatman

Much of Susanna Whatman's "Housekeeging Book" was written in 1776 during the first year of her marriage to James Whatman, the noted English papermaker. As Mistress of Turkey Court, Kent, Susanna Whatman wrote down detailed instructions for her servants, adding to them whenever necessary throughout the following 24 years. "The Housekeeping Book of Susanna Whatman" offers an engrossing picture of life "below stairs" in one of the great 18th-century English houses.
