A DEDICATION

_To every other little bride Who has a "Bob" to please, And says she's tried and tried and tried To cook with skill and ease, And can't!--we offer here as guide Bettina's Recipes!_

_To her whose "Bob" is prone to wear A sad and hungry look, Because the maid he thought so fair Is--well--she just can't cook! To her we say: do not despair; Just try Bettina's Book!_
