Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Duelling
 
Do not cherish that daring vice for which the whole age suffers.—
These private duels—which had their first original from the French, and for which to this day we’re justly censured, are banished from all civil government.
        Beaumont and Fletcher.
  1
Some fiery fop with new commission vain,
Who sleeps on brambles till he kills his man,
Some frolic drunkard reeling from a feast,
Provokes a broil, and stabs you for a jest.
        Dr. Johnson.—London, Line 226.
