eHarmony.com of 1880!

I was doing some research on the Library of Congress website and I came across this unusual booklet from 1880. It is called: How to get a husband! : Leap Year manual. 

  • Leap Year manual for young ladies, spinsters and widows. 
  • "A veritable list of some of the best looking, wealthiest, and most reliable single and marriageable men of the country, with their post office address."--P. 3.

It is the eHarmony.com of the 1880's!

You can find it here. Enjoy it with a nice cup of tea.
