Thank you much (the French grand merci). Thus
Shakespeare, “Be it so, Titus, and gramercy too” (Titus Andronicus,
i. 2). Again, “Gramercies, Tranio, well dost thou advise” (Taming of
the Shrew, i. 1). When Gobbo says to Bassanio, “God bless your
worship!” he replies, “Gramercy. Wouldst thou aught with me?”
(Merchant of Venice, ii. 2.)
