#3 Drunk.

Richard Steele to Mary Scurlock
Saturday night [30 August 1707]

Dear, Lovely Mrs Scurlock,

I have been in very good company, where your unknown name, under the character of the woman I lov’d best, has been often drunk; so that I may say, I am dead drunk for your sake, which is more than ‘I dye for you.’
