Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


Never poor lady had so much unbred holiness
About her person: I am never drest
Without a sermon.—I must show
Texts for the fashions of my gowns.
She works religious petticoats; for flowers
She’ll make church histories.
Mayne.—The City Match, Act II. Scene 2.
