Who wrote “To Wives” in the Big Book?

Who wrote this chapter, Bill or Lois?
Bill was the primary author. The topic is covered on page 200 of Pass It On published by AA World Service. Lois is quoted as saying:
Bill wrote it, and I was mad... I wasn't so much mad as hurt. I still don't know why Bill wrote it. I've never really gotten into it - why he insisted upon writing it. I said to him, "Well, do you want me to write it?" And he said no, he thought it should be in the same style as the rest of the book.
