Reckoning
 
I ne’er cost you a coach yet, nor put you to the dear repentance of a banquet.

So comes a reck’ning when the banquet’s o’er,
The dreadful reck’ning, and men smile no more.

No reckoning made, but sent to my account
With all my imperfections on my head.

And I, with all my sins about me, hurl’d
To th’ utter darkness of the lower world.
        Roscommon.—The Ghost, last Line but two.

I am ill at reckoning; it fits the spirit of a tapster.

Ruminates like an hostess that hath no arithmetic but her brain to set down her reckoning.
