Queen

,—the poor wife of a king, who miserably hoards up riches, and counts her gold, guinea for guinea, with the avaricious, covetous miser her husband; who is greatly belied if she ever did a generous or meritorious act in her whole life; and, for the blessing of the nation, has contributed all in her power to make a bad thing good for nothing.
