Scope and Content

From Alfred Moss to Mr. Philip[?], his wife's Father. Moss states that his wife's happiness is inseparable from his own and that it is natural that as a parent Moss holds Philip responsible for his daughter's present unhappiness. Moss finds it strange that Philip has not asked for an explanation of his supposed misconduct towards his wife. Moss says that his wife has been deceitful and hateful and that he has been wronged and mistreated since they have been married. He speaks against Mrs Moss, saying that she used disgraceful language when they were last down to Bolton which filled him with horror and that his wife denies him the rights of a husband. He argues that Mr. Philip must choose how to respond and that if his wife does not write it is a further neglect of her duties to her husband.
