Excerpt from The Strange Adventures of Captain Dangerous, Vol. 3 of 3: Who Was a Soldier, a Sailor, a Merchant, a Spy, a Slave Among the Moors, a Bashaw in the Service of the Grand Turk, and Died at Last in His Own House in Hanover Square; A Narrative in Old-Fashioned English

Some trouble, indeed, must I have with that luckless Mistress Prue, the Waiting Maid - sure, I did the girl no Harm, beyond whispering a little soft nonsense in her ear now and then. But she must needs have a succession of Hysterical Fits after my departure from the Tower, and write me many scores Of Letters couched in the most Lamentable Rigmarole, threatening to throw herself into Rosamond's Pond in St. J ames's Park (then a favourite drowning-place for Disconsolate Lovers), with many other non sensical Menaces. But I was firm to my Determination to do her no harm, and therefore carefully abstained from answer ing any of her letters. She did not break her heart; but (being resolved to wed one that wore the King's cloth) she married Miles Bandolier about three months after my Departure, and broke his head, ere the Honeymoon Was over, with a Bed-staff. A most frivolous Quean this, and I well rid of her.
