This is the only quote I could find that fits your requirements. I hope it helps!

‘She hath good skill at her needle, that’s certain,’ remarked one of her female spectators; ‘but did ever a woman, before this brazen hussy, contrive such a way of showing it? Why, gossips, what is it but to laugh in the faces of our godly magistrates, and make a pride out of what they, worthy gentlemen, meant for a punishment?’
