Jozef Boruwslaski in Portpatrick - late 18th Century
from Memoirs of Count Boruwslaski, pages 249-50:
Meantime, our joy was restored, by the expectation of seeing Cork; and, in the interval of a calm, I proposed to give a feast to my fellow-travellers, by preparing them coffee. As soon as it was ready, we sat down round the table, in great spirits, singing "Rule Britannia." I asked, who that lady "Brittania" was? The Captain replied, "She is the favourite of the whole nation;" and the lady next me observed, "This great lady is fond of a little flattery like ourselves."
