I have visited a man by the name of Lewis Warner today and believe him and his wife to be as equal a match as I have ever seen. Everything about him wears the impress of laziness and every deportment belonging to her has the same mark. House, herself, children are as dirty as they well can be. He is too lazy to procure anything and she is too trifling to take care of the little pittance that may be provided. There then are two healthy individuals having a family to provide for and energy enough to gain the real wants of nature, in poor decency. Shame on such people.
