EXCERPT:

Once on a time there was a man, so surly and cross, he never thought his wife did anything right in the house. So, one evening, in hay- making time, he came home, scolding and swearing, and showing his teeth and making a dust.

‘Dear love, don’t be so angry; there’s a good man’, said his goody; ‘to-morrow let’s change our work. I’ll go out with the mowers and mow, and you shall mind the house at home.’

Yes! the husband thought that would do very well.
