Description [56] pages. Illustrated throughout with nine drawings in ink including one of Theresa Tidy herself (Reginald's mother, Elizabeth). The manuscript concludes with an Epitaph for Theresa Tidy in a different hand, supposedly written by 'one of the young community who were annoyed by the system she proposed.' This would appear to be Graham herself as it signed with her initials. Elizabeth Graham's EIGHTEEN MAXIMS OF NEATNESS AND ORDER was first published in 1817; it went through many editions.
