The Treasure

Kathleen NORRIS (1880 - 1966)

The Treasure is a story about the Salisbury Family and the trivialities of employing help for the household. Mrs. and Mr. Salisbury see the work of a maid rather differently, especially depending on the level of education. Justine, the latest hired help, is a graduate of the American School of Domestic Science. She has Mrs. Salisbury questioning her ideas of what a maid should be, and considering the more modern approaches that her husband and daughter, Alexandra, seem to embrace.
