L'Estrange: A Woman that brought a Fire into the House.

The Question was put to an honest Man newly marry'd, What might be the Meaning of his New Bride's bringing a Torch out of her Father's House into her Husband's? Why this, says he; I have eas'd my Father-in-law of a Fire-brand, to set my own House in a Flame.

A Contentious Woman puts all into a Flame, wherever she comes.
