Only the husband is at fault, And he should be the culprit, in your view. Nay, he has told us some passages, as he came along, that seem to surpass the power of nature. In such a trice too!

Whither now, ye kitchen-scum? In thy right pocket:—let me see; three love letters from judge Gripus, written to the bottom, on three sides; full of fustian passion, and hearty nonsense: as also, in the same pocket, a letter of thine intended to him, consisting of nine lines and a half, scrawled and false spelled, to show thou art a woman; and full of fraudulence, and equivocations, and shoeing-horns of love to him; to promise much, and mean nothing; to show, over and above, that thou art a mere woman.
