    • 1915, Emerson Hough, The Purchase Price, Ch.I:
      "A fine man, that Dunwody, yonder," commented the young captain, as they parted, and as he turned to his prisoner. "We'll see him on in Washington some day. [] A strong man—a strong one; and a heedless." ¶ "Of what party is he?" she inquired, as though casually.
    • 1928, Lawrence R. Bourne, chapter 7, Well Tackled!:
      The detective kept them in view. He made his way casually along the inside of the shelter until he reached an open scuttle close to where the two men were standing talking. Eavesdropping was not a thing Larard would have practised from choice, but there were times when, in the public interest, he had to do it, and this was one of them.
