This case seems to be of a woman with endless energy and anger. Pity she’s not around now, we could try hooking her up to the national grid. This is from 1816:
A COMMON SCOLD- Letter from Philadelphia – Catherine Field was indicted and convicted of being a CS. The trial was excessively amusing, from a variety of testimony and the diversified names of which this Zantipoe pursued her virulent propensities. “ruder than a March wind, she blew a hurricane’. It was given in evidence that, after having scolded the family individually, the bipeds and quadripeds, the neighbours, hogs, poultry geese, she would throw open the window at night to scold the watchman. Her countenance was an index to her temper: sharp, pinched, sallow and small eyes. To be sentenced.
