Found this when researching primary sources material. He certainly has a very wicked sense of humour! ;-)

To Dorothea Sankey, 24 March 1861

My dearest Miss Dorothea Sankey

My affectionate & most excellent wife is as you are aware still living – and I am proud to say her health is good. Nevertheless it is always well to take time by the forelock and be prepared for all events. Should anything happen to her, will you supply her place, - as soon as the proper period for decent mourning is over.

Till then I am your devoted Servant

No problem! I found this hilarious too, and I thought I'd share it!
