by Rev George Deshon.
First published in 1868, this book contains 83 chapters that would seem to deal with every important subject for the young lady. There are the usual chapters one would expect on Prayer but some unusual chapters like, "How to Behave in Sickness", "The Devil’s Pretexts for Lying" and others. Often a particular virtue is covered on one chapter and then the advantages of that same virtue are shown in the following chapter. The author brings in examples of saints to show how they would deal with spiritual problems.

A simple text-book of ceremonies for Altar Boys, with diagrams showing the movements and positions of the server and containing a pictured explanation of the vestments, altar and sanctuary appointments, together with an interlinear phonetic arrangement of the Latin prayers. It is a great privilege for a boy to be allowed to serve at the altar of the Most High God. The altar boy is indeed one of the pages at the Court of the King of Kings. How you should appreciate this high honor therefore by showing the greatest reverence in the sanctuary, by paying exact attention during the sacred services and by learning your part as perfectly as possible! It was in order to help you to do so, that this little book was prepared.
