    • 1610-11, William Shakespeare, The Tempest, Act II Scene 2
      I prithee let me bring thee where crabs grow,
      and I with my long nails will dig thee pig-nuts,
      Show thee a jay's nest, and instruct thee how
      To snare the nimble marmoset. I'll bring thee
      To clust'ring filberts, and sometimes I'll get thee
      Young scamels from the rock. Wilt thou go with me?
