That the idea that Colonial housewives were marvels of industry is a myth is the opinion expressed by Miss Caroline E. MacGILL, instructor in political economy at the University of Wisconsin, writing in the current number of the Independent.

A modern housewife, says Miss MacGILL, works harder and accomplishes more than any Colonial dame. The belief that our ancestoresses were such prodigies, the author goes on to state, is because modern writers take it for granted that a single woman did all the work of the house, as the modern housewife does, while in reality three, four and often more women united in doing the work of a Colonial household.

The actual truth, writes Miss MacGILL, is that, save in a few instances, these marvelous feats were not performed by a one-woman-power household.

In the country the superfluous daughters of grown families hired out as help to their neighbors. And many families, both country and city, took bound children, bringing them up for the return that their labor would give. In an agricultural community and in the work of the house, these children were of great assistance.

Unmarried sisters, aunts, nieces, etc., Miss MacGILL also points out, were then not self-supporting and able to go out and make their own way in the business world as stenographers, teachers, nurses and bookkeepers. Instead they were dependent upon the bounty of some relative with whom they lived and whose household they helped to direct in return for their maintenances. All this additional assistance did much to lighten the labors of the Colonial housewife.
