my wife, and maintained that she never cared for the children nor they for her. In more temperate letters, where he acknowledged her amiable and complying qualities, he simply and more acceptably asserted that their temperaments were utterly incomparable. She was, apparently, pleasant but rather limited such faults as she had were rather negative than positive.
