A Conjugal Caution

SIR GEORGE ETHEREGE, having run up a score at Lockit's, absented himself

from the ordinary. In consequence of this, Mrs. Lockit was sent to dun

him and threaten him with an action. He told the messenger that he would

certainly kiss her if she stirred a step in it! On this, the message

being brought, she called for her hood and scarf, and told her husband,

who interposed, that she should see if there was any fellow alive that

had the impudence!--Pr'ythee, my dear, don't be so rash, replied the

good man; you don't know what a man may do in a passion.
