"Exhibit A"



My dear Karen,

You always were a clever little thing, and I see you have lost none of your touch.

They say, "Flattery will get you everywhere!" It did this time. You sent me quickly to my typewriter. Wouldn't any father swell with pride before such admiration? Imagine that! My daughter thinks that much of my opinions.

But when I sat down to begin, a great light dawned!

Your request is a superb compliment, but it is not for me. For twenty years you have been observing "Exhibit A!"

Therefore, brought low once more by your trickery, I accept your proposal as the magnificent bouquet to your mother which it really is.

Youknow how devoid I am of knowledge in many areas. But you also know that on one item I am an unmitigated authority. Firsthand, I understand how good it is to be loved by a genius in the art of being a wife.

It will be fun describing my favorite person, so IT be writing you again real soon.

Love,
Dad

    Such great advice I'm passing this book on to my daughter.

    I read this book 25 years ago and have always remembered how meaningful it is. I've been studying what works in relationship for 10 years and this book speaks loudly and clearly. I've always kept it on my active book shelf. Now that my daughter is grown up, I'm getting her her own copy. I'm also giving Letters to Karen and Letters to Phillip as a wedding gift to friends.
