Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
I saw young Harry, with his beaver on,
His cuisses on his thighs, gallantly arm’d,
Rise from the ground like feather’d Mercury,
And vaulted with such ease into his seat
As if an angel dropp’d down from the clouds,
To turn and wind a fiery Pegasus,
And witch the world with noble horsemanship.
        Shakespeare.—King Henry IV., Part I. Act IV. Scene 1. (Sir Richard Vernon to Hotspur.)
