This is a volume dedicated to explaining American etiquette, which the authors consider to be, "The most complete work on Etiquette that has yet been presented to the public." This second part of the book discusses the etiquette of gifts, business, letter writing, notes, cards, funerals, addressing foreign people with titles, games, and amusements. It also discusses specific etiquette for Washington, D.C. The final chapters explain the language of flowers, the significance of precious stones, and recipes for personal care.
