THE PURPOSE of this little book is to procure funds in aid of the farmers in that part of France which was devas- tated by the invasion of the German armies and subsequently regained by the French. This region, in part, one of the most fertile in France, and which sustained hundreds of thousands of inhabitants engaged in agricultural pursuits, has been left desolate, with all buildings destroyed and all farming implements, cattle, and farm pro- ducts taken off by the invaders for military uses. Its old men, women, and children, who survived the slaughter of invasion, are now undertaking the labour of restoring their farms. To help in the supply of seeds, farm implements, and other simple but essential means of enabling these suffering people to regain by their own efforts the necessaries of life, the compilers offer to the public this book on Cookery. Its proceeds will be distributed by Le Secours National, of France, whose effective organization assures its best and most helpful disposition. 3
