Finger In Eye (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Finger In Eye

To put finger in eye; to weep: commonly applied to women. The more you cry the less you’ll p-ss; a consolatory speech used by sailors to their doxies. It is as great a pity to see a woman cry, as to see a goose walk barefoot; another of the same kind.
