"We have enjoyed these 14 years together and we have had the thrill of our life raising our four children. "Now about my wife. She Is just nice looking, not beautiful. She has a fairly nice figure, but not exceptional. Her hands are not as soft as the 'ads' insist they must be because she does all her own work and we haven't always had money to spend on fancy creams and lotions. "Now to be more specific. My wife loves me and would go through fire and flood with me. She has been a firm but understanding mother to our children and taught them moral and spiritual values. "She has carried on since I started working a 4-W-12 shift, having family worship each evening with the children. "In addition to her outside activities she bakes cakes, cookies, pies and breakfast rolls that are better than any you can buy at a bakery. "To me all of these things are more important than beauty. Or, perhaps, beauty is more than outward appearance." Naturally all of these letters are different. And yet they are alike in one respect. They all make much of a wife's ability to make a happy home, to instill the right attitudes n her children, to make her hus- >and feel that he has a real partner at his side who gladly shoulders jer share of the load.
