An original note gives the short reference `Plutarch.' Swift is usually more precise in his references. The nearest parallel I can find in Plutarch is in the life of Eumenes, who, besieged in the fortress of Nora, had no food for his men but corn and salt, which he seasoned with the sauce of his own conversation.
