- 1918, W. B. Maxwell, chapter 19, in The Mirror and the Lamp:
- Nothing was too small to receive attention, if a supervising eye could suggest improvements likely to conduce to the common welfare. Mr. Gordon Burnage, for instance, personally visited dust-bins and back premises, accompanied by a sort of village bailiff, going his round like a commanding officer doing billets.
- 1956 , Johanna Spyri, Heidi, translation of original by Eileen Hall, page 84:
- 'There's a boy here who wants to speak to Miss Clara personally,' he announced.
- Concerning oneself.
- I'm really annoyed with her, personally.
- As a person.
- I like you personally, but as a colleague you are useless.
