  • Will Wizard...will set before the fire, with his feet on the massy andirons, and smoke his cigar, and screw his phiz, and spin away tremendous long stories of his travels, for a whole evening, to the great delight of the old gentleman and lady, and especially to the young ladies, who, like Desdemona, do "seriously incline," and listen to him with innumerable "O dears," "is it possibles," "goody graciouses," and look upon him as a second Sinbad the sailor.

    --Washington Irving, 1807, Salmagundi
