Overview

Excerpt from The Jealous Wife: A Comedy, in Three Acts

Scene I. - A Room in Oakly's House.

Noise heard within, R. U. E.

Mrs. O. (within) Don't tell me - I know it is so - It's, monstrous, and I will not bear it.

Oakly. (within) But, my dear! -

Mrs. O. Nay, nay, &c. (squabbling within, L.)

Enter Mrs. Oakly, R. U. E. with a letter, followed by Oakly.

Mrs. O. (L.) Say what you will, Mr. Oakly, you sall never persuade me but this is some filthy intrigue of yours.

Oakly. (R.) I can assure you, my love -

Mrs. O. Your love! Don't I know your - Tell me, I say, this instant, every circumstance relating to this letter.

Oakly. How can I tell you, when you will not so much as let me see it.

Mrs. O. Look you, Mr. Oakly, this usage is not to be borne. You take a pleasure in abusing my tenderness and soft disposition. To be perpetually running over the whole town, nay, the whole kingdom too, in pursuit of your amours! Did not I discover that you was great with mademoiselle, my own woman? Did not you contract a shameful familiarity with Mrs. Freeman? Did not I detect your intrigue with Lady Wealthy? Was not you -

Oakly. Oons, madam, you throw me out of all patience! Do I know any body but our common friends? Am I visited by any body that does not visit you? Do I ever go out, unless you go with me? And am I not as constantly by your side as if I was tied to your apron strings?
