PITHY QUOTE FROM Mandeville: Collected Works

Open quotes
To gain this Victory, a certain Lady named Julia, put a young Fellow Into Bed with a young Girl, and laid a Crucifix as a Barrier betwixt them. Which, if it kept them Virtuous, ought not to be omitted in the Catalogue of the Miracles that have been wrought by Crucifixes.
