Many A Masculine Heart Has Been Found In A Woman’s Breast

An island story; a child's history of England (1906) (14778822194) Matthew Henry on 2 Samuel 20:16:

Souls know no difference of sexes. Though the man be the head, it does not therefore follow that he has the monopoly of the brains, and therefore he ought not, by any salique law, to have the monopoly of the crown. Many a masculine heart, and more than masculine, has been found in a female breast; nor is the treasure of wisdom the less valuable for being lodged in the weaker vessel.
