"You are n4w married, and as is usual
on such occasions, your friends and ac
quaintances will profess-to wish you joy.
Many will do so as an actof common
civility, feeling little or nothing of the
sentiment which the words import--
When, however, I express a solicitude
for your welfare, I think I am entitled
to the credit of meanintsomething more
than the performance empty, cere
mony. But when congratulating you.
I know nb' better way of proving the
sincerity of my professions, thin by
tendering you my advice as to some of
the means I deem necessary to be 'pm
sued in order to render your new situa
tion a matter of real felicitation.
"Young people'are very apt to think,
if they think at all on the subject, that
when they get married their cafes are
all scattered to the winds, and that their
happiness is secured for life; So far
from the truth is such a thought, that
when reality awakens them from the
dream of uninterrupted bliss, they find
their sorrows certainly doubled, and
whether their joys are to be increased
or not, depends mostly upon themselves ;
and they will Atilt find causes enough to
interrupt their happiness, though each
should do their best to precentor coun
teract them. One thing is certain, that
the married state may be made more
happy than the single life, or it may
become a state of perfect wretchedaess ;
and whether your present situation is to
be better than that you exchanged for
it, depends much or mostly on yourself.
ft is therefore a matter the first in or
der, as well as the first in importance to
you, that you should endeavor to ascer
tain the means best calculated to secure
a continuance of that kappiness which
doubtless you expected to experience
in the wedded life. On this subject I
will endeavor to assist you.
"That you were happy during the pe
riod spent in courtship, you will not
deny. That you were so, arose - from
the consciousness that you loved and
were loved in return ; and from the
pleasing hope or moral certainty that
you would attain the object of your af
fections. The hope is realized, and that
you are happy now, you need no one to
tell you. If it is the reciprocated effec
tions of your husband which make you
happy, it is yours which makes bim so ;
hence, mutual affections constitute the
source of connubial bliss ; and it is
equally true that the infelicity of the
married state, follows the loss of those
affections. On the continuance of the
affections, then, no less than on the
choice of a husband, depends your hap
pitiess in the wedded life. The means
to insure a continuance of those affec
tions, is the subject next in course for .
your consideration.
"So numerous are the instances in
which married people have lost their af
fections for each other, that the unre
fleeting have hastily concluded, that it
is easier t acquire them than attain
them. If this be true, it goes to prove
that you should be more assiduous to re
tain the affections of yoUr husband, than
you were to gain them, But it is not
true to the extent which many believe.
It, is verrunphilosophical to argue, that
like causes do not prodUce like effects
—or that the effect will cease, though
the "cause be continued. • The truth
mbst probably is, that when the affec•
time of married people become extinct,
it is owing to their neglect to continue
the causes by which those affections
were first elicited. What man in his
senses, if he knew the disposition of the
lady he addressed, would fall in love
with a sour, sulky, brawling, ill natured
woman ? It is the opposite qualities
whfch he sees, or thinks he sees, in the
lady of his choice, of which he becomes
enamored. It is a countenance illu
mined with smiles, eyes beaming with
intelligence, s mouth flowing with
sweetness and good nature—in short,
deportment indicative of modesty, mild
ness and benignity, to which he pays
the homage of his heart. If such were
the causes by which were quickened the
tendeiness of the lover, rely on it that
nothing short of those will insure the
affections'of the husband; for when the
causes subside, the effects must necessa
rily cease, and then misery and wretch
edness will become the inmates of your
"More of the happiness of married
people is involved in their conduct du
ring the first year, than in any succeed
ing period of their connubial associa
tion. There Bret probably but few in

ter which had before escaped their ob
servation—and much, very much, of the
felicity of their lives, depends on the
course they may pursue on those ,occa
-810139. Should the newly discovered
faults or follies of the. husband appear
to' be such as to preclude .the hope of
their being corrected, however unpleas
ant the task, the wife's earnest- course
wilt be to endeavor to accommodate her
self to them. If she cannot bring her
'circumstances to her mind, the alterna
tive is to try to bring her mind to her
'circumstances. Custom and habit tend
to lessen the effect of evils which can
not be destroyed ; and common pru
dence will induce her to conceal from
her husband her 'knowledge of those
faults of his which she cannot expect to
obviate because it will riot inctease his
affections for her shorild he think that
hers for him are in the wane. If a wo
man would correct the faults or follies
of her husband, she should refleot that
she can only do, it by "means of her influ
ence over him--that she has, in general,
no other Influence than what arises from
his affections for her—that'the continu
ance of these depends on The Continu
ance of the causes by which they were
kindled,—and you may rest assured, that
whatever female patience, mildness,
good humor, arid tender affection cannot
accomplish with a husband, frowns,
sulks, sharp reproofs, and ill-natured re
proaches can never achieve. By the
former he may be soothed and softened
into complaisance, and willingly led to
abandon a foible or a fault ; but the
latter will inevitably tend to sour. his
mind, to curdle all the milk of human
kindness in his bosom, warm his resent
ment, excite his opposition, and confirm
him in error.
"My acquaintance with your husband
has Mimed me to believe, that bis
whole heart and soul accompany big af
fections and aversions ; and that it de
pends much pr mostly on the exercise
of your prudence and discretion, wheth
er he will be to you a kind and tender
husband, or at unpleasant and nninter
eating associate. Perhaps you are now
about to ask, if the wife must make all
and the• husband no sacrifice to promote
connubial concord and domestic peace ?
I mean no such thing—on the contrary,
so much depends on your mutual en
deavors, that without the husband's, the
wife's cannot succeed. But the path I
have pointed out for you to take, is the
surest, nay the only one to be pursued to
produce or continue -in hint ' the disposi a corresponding course of meas
ures. Can that bi called a sacrifice
which promotes ilomesoa blies ? As;
well may he he said to sacrifice: his
money who gives it for alarger sum.

less causes, cannot but sometimes oper
ate to disturb his mind, depress his
spirits and becloud his visage ; produ
cing, perhaps unusual taciturnity, or a
strain of language not remarkable for
its millifluent cadences. This is not the
occasion on which he is, to be met with
a corresponding deportment on the part
of his wife. It is rather the time when,
the exercise of all her philosophy is in.
dispensable, a time when her temper is
to be tried, her heart probed, and her
affections put to the test; the time when,
by her kind, soft, and sympathizing lan
guage, and a countenance and conduct
bearing testimony to its sincerity, that
he is to be comforted at least with the
reflection, that he has a friend in adver
sity as well as in prosperity, a partner
in his sorrows as well as in his joys. I
may possibly be singular in the opinion,
but I could never entertain the fullest
confidence even in the virtue of that fe- .
male whose sympathies could not be ex.
cited by the sorrows of others ; and
surely a wife can never appear so inter
esting and amiable in the eyes of her
husband, as when sees her melting
with kindness to him, and sorrowing for
his sorrows. In short it should be the
object of your unremitted attention, to
make him feel that his home is a place
of refuge from his cares, a sanctuary
from the frowns of adverse fortune, and
he will seek it as naturally as he would
desire his own felicity. But when a
husband ceases to regard his home as
the happiest place on, earth, he . would
shun it as he would fly from his troililes';
and es it eftei happens; will take the
road to rutn, ancl seek at the ale-house,

dress, or PleaSed to see. you - Careless in
this reepecf, either at home-- or abroad.
Those wives have not reflected ranch,
who think a slipshod' slattern hazards
nothing of her husband's good opinion
or that the hick of neatness in domestic
dress is not a certain indication of her
indolence and the disordered aspects of
her habitation. 'lryour husband loves
you,'he Could not but feel sotriewhat of
disappoiotment, should the personal ap
pearance of his wife be much inferior to
that of the girl he courted, or to the igen. •
erality of those females with. whom you
may happen to associate. He cannot
but makecomparisons, and it should be
your care , tha,f they should,not result in
your disadvantage. _
..Extravaganc.e in dress should also
be avoided as ill calculated, to increase
the respectability of a married lady, and
it sometimes occasions surmises , nowise
creditable to the female character. •In
deed, you ought, by consulting,your hue-
band's wishes in thigi respect, to leave
him not a doubt, that your dress is
fashioned to meet his approhation, more
than to attract the gaze or gain, the ad
miration of any or every other person.
It• may be, thought, perhaps, by some
that the dress of the wife is, to the hus
band, a matter of very trifling conse
quence ; but 'rely upon , it, the e f fect . of
disregarding his opinions on this subject,
is not always wholly unimportant.
...You have doubtless seen and heard
enough to knOW, that nothing short of
crime can more impair the rnspedtability
of a married lady, than often being seen
at public plades unattended by her hus
band. " , Should yours have no desire" to
be thrUnged with company a!, home, nor
di position to seek it abroad ; or shetild
von unfortunately aspire to live in a
style inconsistent
_with his feelings or

show yon, that no .y action of yours eavor

"Abrupt contradiction of any one,
though sometimes the effect of an un
guarded moment, is generally regarded
as a sure indication of low and vulgar
hreeding ; but such conduct in a wife
towards a husbapd, seldom fails to ren
