FRANCOIS MAXIMLIEN MISSON
French descriptive writer
(1650? - 1722)

Tobacco, charmer of my mind,
  When like the meteor's transient gleam,
    Thy substance gone to air I find,
      I think, alas! my life's the same.
        [Fr., Tobac! dont mon ame est ravie,
          Lorsque je te vois te perdre en l'air,
            Aussi promptement q'un eclair,
              Je vois l'image de ma vie.]
      - Memoirs of his travels over England,
        (translation by Ozell) [Tobacco]
