This lovely sentiment is supposed to have come from a tombstone in Massachusetts:
This to the memory of Ellen Hill,
A woman who would always have her will,
She snubbed her husband, though she made good bread
And on the whole he's rather glad she's dead.
She whipped her children, (and she drank her gin)
Whipped virtue out, and whipped the devil in.
May all such women go to some great fold
Where they may through all eternity scold.[The Coshocton (Ohio) Democrat, Mar. 27, 1866]
