Geoffrey Chaucer, The Canterbury Tales: General Prologue 27, The Agreement - (Forrest Hainline's Minimalist Translation)

This thing was granted, and our oaths swore
With full glad heart, and prayed him also
That he would vouchsafe for to do so,
815 And that he would be our governor,
And our tale's judge and reporter,
And set a supper at a certain price,
And we will ruled be at his devise
In high and low; and thus by one assent
820 We were accorded to his judgment.
And thereupon the wine was fetched anon;
We drank, and to rest went each one,
Without any longer tarrying.
