References in classic literature ?
Tierce after tierce, too, of water, and bread, and beef, and shooks of staves, and iron bundles of hoops, were hoisted out, till at last the piled decks were hard to get about; and the hollow hull echoed under foot, as if you were treading over empty catacombs, and reeled and rolled in the sea like an air-freighted demijohn.
The hospital has written off $267,922 in medical bills the Shooks incurred as their child fought for her life while being hospitalized for nearly two months.
