Advice To A Daughter

In the book Advice to a Daughter (1688) by Lord Halifax, he seems to be instructing his daughter in matters of etiquette that were acceptable for the 17th and 18th centuries. The fact that he took the time to write this book for his daughter shows that he was a dedicated father especially during this period of time because women were regarded with less respect than men.

In this book Lord Halifax covers every preconceived notion of how a proper young lady was supposed to act and carry herself. There are instruction on religion, sex, family and child rearing, friendship, and several other topics that were important
