Jeremy Bentham in a trip from On board the Mary Frances, on a voyage from Genoa to Smyrna - 19 October, 1785

from Letter from Jeremy Bentham to his father, Jeremiah Bentham 11 October – 25 November, 1785, page 379:

I have not yet told you because we have but this instant learnt that the name of our friend’s ship is the San Nicola (St. Nicholas) and his own Giovanni (John) Patareschi or some such name. We are now trudging together (8 o’clock p.m.) near enough for us to see and hear our neighbours at their prayers. We have been mutually toasting one another with Music; if ours was but so so theirs, Italian as it is, was infinitely worse.
