    Default all trouble in that quarter

    Hola. ¿Qué significa la palabra "quarter" en el texto siguiente?: Still, I was not going to be beaten. I had bought the place and meant to make money out of it. To make money it was absolutely necessary the popular belief in the idea of previous tenants should be shaken, and so I shook it. Once Mrs. Paul understood I was the owner of Crow Hall, all trouble in that quarter ceased. She waited upon me "hand and foot," to use her own vague phrase. Gracias por vuestra ayuda.

    En ese contexto quarter significa "regarding that matter"; "on that subject"; "in that area"; "about that";

    Qué te parece esto:

    En cuanto la señora Paul supo/entendió que yo era el dueño de Crow Hall cesó cualquier problema en ese sentido.

    No sé cómo te suena ...
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."
