How to Preserve a Husband

Be careful in your selection; Do not choose too young.When once selected, give your entire thought to preparation for domestic use.

Some insist on keeping them in a pickle; others are constantly getting them into hot water.
This makes them sour, hard and sometimes bitter.

Even poor varieties may be made sweet, tender and good by garnishing them with patience,
well sweetened with love and seasoned with kisses and smiles.

The wrap them in a mantle of charity, keep warm with a steady fire of domestic
devotion and milk of human kindness.

Thus prepared, they will keep forever.

I typed this up in the computer and included in with the gifts I supplied for couples night a poem I got from this Ball Book that had been my mother's when she was a young lady and canning for our family. I thought it was sweet!
