good deeds and bad deeds, between pure

fine feelings and course feelings, a much

fault; and never reproach him when he
is in the wrong, especially when he tells
you of it, nor take advantage of it when
you are angry; and always keep his heart
up when be has made a failure.
"Keep all disagreement for your own
room, and never let others find ihena
"Never ask him not to do anything
for instance, with regard to visiting
other women, or any one you particular
