[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]
"Mr. Willoughby, I advise you at present to return to Combe. I am not at leisure to remain with you longer. Whatever your business may be with me, it will be better recollected and explained to-morrow." "I understand you," he replied, with an expressive smile, and a voice perfectly calm. "Yes, I am very drunk. -- A pint of porter with my cold beef at Marlborough was enough to overset me."
