Don Juan 04-113
Canto the Fourth
But to the narrative: -- The vessel bound
 With slaves to sell off in the capital,
After the usual process, might be found
 At anchor under the seraglio wall;
Her cargo, from the plague being safe and sound,
 Were landed in the market, one and all,
And there with Georgians, Russians, and Circassians,
Bought up for different purposes and passions.

George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron (1788-1824)
