in consequence of the missive, I shall always have a great regard for the Miss Martins, penned by Stephanie
No I dont think they woudl be "pitching in" to help. They are being educated as "young ladies" with accomplishments. They would like most women do sewing and problaby they'd be involved in the dairy and poultry (as many gentry women were) but it woudld be largely supervisory work. Problaby at present Mrs Martin did most of this but as she got older and the girls came home from schcool they would take over more of it. Tehy might do some light housework as well.
