Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Samuel Foote
  Black as a cassock.  1
  Hearty as an oak.  2
  A white horse and a beautiful woman are akin, and two troublesome things to manage: the first is difficult to be kept clean; and the second, honest.  3
  Immaculate as a sheet of white paper.  4
  Plain as a pikestaff.  5
  Pouting lip like the print upon a pound of butter.  6
  Secure as in the cell of a saint.  7
