Widows are a study you will never be any proficient in.
        Fielding.—Love in Several Masques, Act IV. Scene 9.
And, widow, as I say, be your own friend;
Your husband left you wealthy, ay, and wise;
Continue so, sweet duck, continue so.
        Beaumont and Fletcher.—The Scornful Lady, Act I. Scene 3.
Presents her weed, well fancied, at the ball,
And raffles for the death’s-head on the ring.
        Dr. Young.—Night V. Line 581.
A death’s face in a ring.
        Shakespeare.—Love’s Labour’s Lost, Act V. Scene 2. (Biron to Dumain.)
