PITHY QUOTE FROM Manley: Selected Works

Open quotes
The Esquire heard her, and wondred what was the matter; he came twice to the Door, but she wou’d not let him in, but said she was up in her Shift and almost Mad with her Teeth. Well, to Bed he goes, and after a few more Labour-pains, she is Deliver’d all-alone by her self of a brave Boy. Lest he shou’d cry, she tore out his Bowels in the Birth.
