Daily Dose

From The Life of William Cowper, by Thomas Wright


"When confronted by her father the girl showed some spirit.  'What will you do,' asked the little man, 'if you marry William Cowper?' 'Wash all day,' was the reply, ' and ride the great dog at night.'"

From Chapter II, Southampton Row and the Temple 1749 - December 7th, 1763
