' LETTERS FROM MOTHER
VII; She Urges Her Daughter Not to Be Self-Centered.
' My! Dear Daughter: I am very sorry to know that you are
troubled with nausea in the morning. Many yoUng wives escape
that with their first baby and I was in hopes you were to be one

want a normal, healthy, well-formed one. I believe thai when you
restrain your appetite from unnatural development you are not qnly;
' strengthening your'own physical condition, but you are alsoj)lan
