MetadataShow full item record
An article entitled "Being a Husband" by Ethelwyn Wetherald under the pseudonym "Bel Thistlethwaite". She begins the article "The desire to be a man has never taken deep root in my heart, but I have often thought I should like to be a husband for a little while." She continues "As for the object of my love, I should not dream of asking her to be mine. It would be impossible for me to respect a woman who belonged to any one. 'Give me, I entreat you, the best right to make you happy. That is and always will be the strongest desire of my life.' Such or something like it would be the form of my address. But lovely words drop easily from lover's lips. In any case these flowers of speech should, of course, bloom perennially."
