"For weeks [Henry] Knox had been urging Lucy to leave the city, for her own safety and that of their infant daughter. "My God, may I never experience the like feelings again! They were too much, but I found a way to disguise them, for I scolded like a fury at her for not having gone before."
Ladies, when your husband tells you to do something that is for your safety, don't argue with him. Do it, as quickly as possible.
