Counsel for August

The following comes from W. W. Phelps, Almanac for the Year 1859: The Third after Leap Year; and after the 6th of April, Thirtieth year of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Great Salt Lake City, UT: J. McKnight, 1859), 10:
AUGUST for worthy women affords plenty of time to spin and weave; nice cloth from May's "shearing of the flock;" wool, cotton, flax, hemp, and rags for carpets, all adorn the toilet of wives and daughters better than the foreigner's costly commodities of ambition. Prudence says, cloth thyself, and the Lord will help thee.
