THE
WIFE'S TRIALS
AND
TRIUMPHS.

"To soothe thy sickness, watch thy health
Partake, but never waste thy wealth,
Or stand with smiles unmurmuring by,
And lighten half thy poverty;
Do all but close thy dying eye,
That, may I never live to try; —
To this alone my thoughts aspire,
More can I give, or thou require?"
