      I would suggest using google book search. Look for the author John Trusler. It's all right in our period and covers a wide breadth of topics. One interesting one is "The London Adviser and Guide." Not too much specific details on how to be polite or a gentleman, no "thou shalt not"s or anything, but a good guide that will give you a general sense.

      I have not found an online copy of "Domestic Management" anywhere. If anyone does, I would appreciate a link.
