Title
Untitled--My Wife Is Acceptable. Our relationship is satisfactory. Edgar G. Edgar looks splendid here. His power and strength of character come through. He is a very private person who is not demonstrative of his affection; that has never made me unhappy. I accept him as he is. We are totally devoted to each other. Regina Goldstine Dear Jim: May you be as lucky in marriage!, from the series Rich and Poor
