Mrs. Lida Seely was more than a cook-book author. She ran an employment agency that provided staff for most of the wealthy families of New York.
She trained not only young men and women to work in large homes but she later imparted her rules and regulations to the public at large.
If you were unclear of the actual duties of a "Fourth -Man" Mrs. Seely would be able to explain exactly what you would need him to do. [CBD]
