VALENTINE

Buffalo, Feb. 14. Dear Sir: I am only too proud of the chance to help with this the only Valentine I venture to write this day -- for although I am twain in my own person I am only half a person in my matrimonial form, and sometimes my wife shows that she is so much better and nobler than I am, that I seriously question if I am really any more than about a quarter!
- Letter to an unidentified correspondent, featured on an internet auction by Bennett Stamps, Baltimore, Maryland, March 2006
