Delicious Strawberry Dumplings - Put one pint of flour into a bowl; add to it half a teaspoonful of salt and a teaspoonful of baking powder; rub in carefully a tablespoon of butter, and add sufficient milk to just moisten. Knead lightly, ad roll out into a sheet aobut a sixteenth of an inch in thickness. Cut with a large round cutter; put three strawberries in the center of each round; fold over the dough, rolling it carefully so that you cannot see the opening; stand in a greased baking-pan; brush the top with milk, and bake in a quick oven for fifteen minutes.

The Ladies' Home Journal, May 1898
1800s Etiquette 1800s Advice and Etiquette for Ladies

Never criticise a companion's dress, or indeed make any remark whatever upon it. If a near friend, you may, if sincere, admire any article, but with a mere acquaintance let it pass unnoticed. If, however, any accident has happened to the dress, of which she is ignorant, tell her of it, and assist her in repairing the mischief.
