Excerpt from The Little Gypsy
This tailor had a wife. Neat, active, industri ous, and obliging, Marguerite had many excellent qualities; but, as Wolf sometimes said laugh ingly, the baker had put too much yeast in the bread. It must be confessed, that if Marguerite was warm-hearted, she was also hot-headed. She sighed for rank, riches, and pleasure; and annoyed with her silly complaints the worthy Wolf, whose ambition never soared beyond the limits of his mountains. But, in Spite of her faults, Marguerite was the best Wife in the world; and, when she was loving and gay, Wolf quickly forgot her weaknesses of character.
