Advertisement for a Wife

I want a good wife.  I am a farmer or anything else she wants.  Any sort of complexion will do.  No difference how high or low she is, so she will be true to my live little ones.  I have just returned from Arkansas, where my wife died on the first day of August 1884.  I prefer a light complected woman, and she must have straight hair  I have got my own corn and 75 to 100 bushels of sweet potatoes.  I have been wanting to get a good woman and I will respect one when I find her.  This offer will be open for ten days.
