Husbands love your wives (David Dickson)

Reformed Covenanter

Cancelled Commissioner
To Husbands, whom he commands in the first place, that they love their own Wives, and that with a singular and holy affection, and to rest satisfied in one Wife: Further, he forbids them, that they be not bitter towards them, either in word or deeds, although they be provoked by their infirmities, but that they prudently rule them, as it becomes Husbands.
