Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


Good-bye—my paper’s out so nearly,
I’ve only room for——your’s sincerely.
Tom Moore.—The Fudge Family in Paris, end of Letter 6.

Swift.—8th Letter to Stella.

My paper puts me in mind that I have but just room to tell you I am with great sincerity yours.
M. Ormond.—The Duchess to Swift, Sept. 14, 1716. (Roscoe’s Life of Swift.)
