  20. 24. <ul><li>The story is that she was the beautiful wife of Leofric III (968 - 1057), Earl of Mercia and lord of Coventry. The people of that city were suffering grievously under the earl's oppressive taxation. Lady A appealed again and again to her husband, who obstinately refused to remit the tolls. At last, weary of her entreaties, he said he would grant her request if she would ride naked through the streets of the town. Lady A took him at his word, and after issuing a proclamation that all persons should keep within doors or shut their windows, she rode through, clothed only in her long hair. One person disobeyed her proclamation, a tailor, ever afterwards known as B . He bored a hole in his shutters that he might see A pass, and is said to have been struck blind. Her husband kept his word and abolished the onerous taxes. This Saxon legend gives rise to a brand A and a phrase B . Identify A and B ? </li></ul>4
