Since the previous post referenced the relative value of plow-boys and delivery boys, here’s Martin Luther’s estimation of the value of servant-maids.

“When I preach I regard neither doctors nor magistrates, of whom I have above forty in my congregation; I have all my eyes on the servant maids and on the children. And if the learned men are not well pleased with what they hear, well, the door is open.”
Martin Luther, quoted in Christian History, issue 34, page 27.
