"Absinthe used to be my drink, sir, he was good enough to tell his friends.....It makes the ink run, and imparts a fine eloquence to the style"
The Cornhill Magazine: Vol. I, January to June, 1860. - Page 260 by George Smith, William Makepeace Thackeray.

Indeed, Sir.There is another quote I recall from Thackeray about absinthe? I know that he drank it in France.
