Abstract:
Sarah S. Robinson was the daughter of John Huske, of Fayetteville, and wife of Thomas Jefferson Robinson. In 1888, when she was 54, she began her HOUSEHOLD BOOK, in which she recorded the activities of running a house. The book presents a view of domestic life during the last quarter of the 19th-century. Among Robinson's entries are the names of two cooks and a servant and their wages, laundry lists, the name of the laundress, foods that were purchased or raised in the garden, and recipes. HOUSEHOLD BOOK, 1888, is currently in the archives of the Lower Cape Fear Historical Society.
