To the Editor of the Gleaner

Sir -- With reference to the advertisement in your journal of the 12th instant, by Richard Keane's notice against his wife, I beg you will be good enough to give insertion to the following observations I have to make thereon: --

I wish to know from him (Mr. K.) his reason for advertising his virtuous wife. Has she ever committed herself in any way? Has she ever involved him in any debt, or had she ever acted imprudently or improperly towards him? To any or either of these questions I defy him to give an answer in the affirmative. Can he therefore assign any reason for so unjustifiable an act towards an innocent wife?

Had his virtuous and truly innocent wife followed the advice and counsel of her parents and friends, she never would have disgraced herself by marrying as she did.

I am Mr. Editor

Your obedient servant

Her brother,
