Ere you were queen, ay, or your husband king,
I was a packhorse in his great affairs. Shakesp.
It is not to be expected that a man, who drudges on in a
laborious trade, should be more knowing in the variety of
things done in the world, than a packhorse who is driven con-
stantly forwards and backwards to market, should be skilled
in the geography of the country. Locke.
