Rules of Civility & Decent Behaviour in Company & Conversation
When George Washington was sixteen years old, he began copying 110 maxims for polite behavior into his schoolbooks. These rules describe the behavior of a gentleman, and many claim that they greatly influenced Washingtons attitudes and standards for his own behavior.
Each volume contains 27 or 28 rules, with space to copy and illustrate each one. Practice for children learning to write, and spark discussion about civil and decent behavior.
Volume 4 contains such intriguing rules as:
Rule 89: "Speak not Evil of the absent for it is unjust."
