5104. MARRIAGE, Congratulations on.—

It is customary in America to “wish joy”
to a new married couple, and this is generally
done by those present in the moment after
the ceremony. A friend of mine, however,
always delayed the wish of joy till one year
after the ceremony, because he observed they
had by that time need of it. I am entitled
fully then to express the wish to you as
you must now have been married at least
three years. I have no doubt, however, that
you have found real joy in the possession of
a good wife, and the endearments of a child.—
To Philip Mazzel. Ford ed., viii, 15.
(W. 1801)
