The Iowa Homemaker: Volume 10, Issue 3
While away from Ames this summer on my vacation, a letter from a former student was forwarded to me. The writer of the letter is a graduate of Iowa State, who has been teaching for several years. She is now thinking of marriage and is much interested in the choice of dishes for her new home. Since she wanted a dinner set, I was asked to advise her as to the best china to buy. She wished a china that was beautiful in design and color, and at the same time a china that was durable. She furthermore wanted something that she would not get tired of, of which broken pieces could he readily replaced, and also china that would be worthy of handing down to future generations. This letter is one of many that come to us at Iowa State College.
