Flossie.-Hospitality does not call for elaborate feasts and fine surroundings, but it is well to provide our best, and show our guests by cordial treatment and a desire to please them, that we are glad to have them with us. Be your own dear willing self, and do not strain to imitate those whose means are far beyond your own; remember the “dinner of herbs where love is.”
“Better a dinner where love is than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.” Proverbs 15:17
