"My squire, however, will intimate how I am; while I content myself with assuring you, that I will, to all eternity, preserve engraven upon the tablets of my memory, the benevolence you this day vouchsafed unto me, that I may be grateful for the favour, as long as life shall remain."
— Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de (1547-1616); Smollett, Tobias (1721-1771)
