Content: Title from folder.
Content: Printed on border: "By Mrs. Jane Weaver." "This model for a baby's feeding-bib is to be made of white flannel, bordered with herring bone-stich in white, red, or blue French working cotton. The fringe is also of the same cotton. Bibs should always be made of flannel, particularly when babes are cutting teeth; if made of cotton, the saliva constantly pouring from a baby's mouth saturates the bib, and chills the child -- this is not the case with flannel. If made of damask, for an older child, simply as an eating-bib, it might be made nearly to reach the termination of the dress." Written on border: "Apr 1883."
