In the front of the book Sketches of Human Manners appears the following advertisement.

‘It is intended, in this small volume, to combine, in a few simple stories, innocent and moral entertainment, with an account of the characteristic manners and peculiar customs of different countries. Most of the incidents, as well as the descriptions, are gathered from the writings of travellers of reputation ; and the author flatters herself she shall once more experience the indulgence of a public, to which she feels herself under lasting obligations.’
