'Supposing that I have here in my pocket some clue to where Flint buried his treasure, will that treasure amount to much?' 'Amount, sir!' cried the squire. 'It will amount to this: If we have the clue you talk about, I fit out a ship in Bristol dock, and take you and Hawkins here along, and I'll have that treasure if I search a year.'" (Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island)
