Excerpt from Cottages: How to Arrange and Build Them to Ensure Comfort, Economy, and Health, Hints on Fittings and Furniture

It is difficult to understand why this should be. No doubt it may be said that there was not the same necessity for the close attention being devoted to the various grades of superior cottages, which was demanded in the case of those occupied by labourers, inasmuch as the same evils did not exist, or were presumed not to exist. It is open to doubt the accuracy of this opinion. The evils connected with superior cottages may not have been, and are not now, so glaring and offensive at once to sight and sense of propriety, as those connected with labourers' cottages. They may also be said to be of a different kind, if admitted by some to exist. Sanitary, for example only, not social or moral. But in these days of sanitary discussions and sanitary work, the suggestions of the one and the labours of the other should be considered just as necessary of application to the cottages occupied by the better or more fortunate classes of society as to those in which the working classes reside.

That a wide field for improvement, both in planning and in constructing exists in connection even with very superior cottages, anyone who knows aught practically of the subject is but too well aware. Facts and figures there are in abundance to prove this; and the records of medical science alone, if explained and made public.
