5106. MARRIAGE, Happiness in.—[continued].

The happiness of your
life now depends on the continuing to please
a single person. To this all other objects
must be secondary, even your love for me,
were it possible that could ever be an obstacle.
But this it never can be. Neither of you can
ever have a more faithful friend than myself,
nor one on whom you can count for
more sacrifices. My own is become a secondary
object to the happiness of you both.
Cherish, then, for me, my dear child, the affection
of your husband, and continue to
love me as you have done, and to render my
life a blessing by the prospect it may hold up
to me of seeing you happy.—
To Martha Jefferson Randolph. D. L. J., 180.
(N.Y., 1790gt;
