Excerpt
Well, surely, this is the hardest task in nature, to serve a man so far gone in love. Why, my master neither eats, drinks, nor sleeps; and here I am obliged to attend him, night and day, in the charming amusements of fasting and waking:—This may be pleasant to a lover; but as I am not one of the sighing gentry, I could wish for more substantial entertainment. At this rate, we shall make a black Lent of the whole year;—in a fortnight I shall be shrunk to less than a sizeable eel;—my cheeks are already thinner than parchment, and my jaws, for want of proper use, are almost lock'd:—This master of mine, is—but, here he comes.
