The young wife was in tears when she opened the door for her husband. "I've been insulted," she sobbed. "Your mother insulted me."
"My mother!" he exclaimed. "Did she call you?"
"No, but a letter came for you this morning and I opened it."
He looked stern, "I see, and where does the insult come in?"
"In the P.S.," she answered. "It said, 'Dear Alice, don't forget to give this letter to George.'"
A woman reported the disappearance of her husband to the police.

"Yes," she replied. "Please tell him Mother didn't come after all."
