    • c1840, Ramón Varela Vahamonde, Conversa entre os arrieiros:
      Váian ao inferno a beber,
      Que a min ben me xiringaron
      E, entre mangas e riostras,
      Trecentos reás vöaron.
      Débenme, Dios sabe canto,
      O menos trint’e set’olas
      E coidaban os larpeiros
      De pagarmas con parolas.
      Let them go to Hell to drink,
      because they harmed me very much
      and, among other things,
      three hundred reals flew away.
      They owe me God knows how much,
      at least a hundred and fifty gallons,
      and the gluttons thought of
      paying me with banter.
