Hang thee, young baggage! disobedient wretch! I tell
thee what-get thee to church a Thursday or never
after look me in the face. Speak not, reply not, do
not answer me! Wife, we scarce thought us blest
that God had lent us but this only child; but now
I see this one is one too much, and that we have
a curse in having her. Out on her, hilding! (III.V.161).
