"'Moneylender,' Bates said frankly. 'I gamble, d'ye see. That's what's brought me to this pass; need of money. My old granny said as the cards were the devil's pasteboards, and they'd lead me straight to hell. I wonder if I shall get to see her and tell her she was right? Though if so, I suppose she'll be in hell, too, won't she? Serve her right, the prating old bizzom.'"
—Diana Gabaldon, Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade (New York: Delacorte Press, 2007), 187
