"As old as my tongue and a little bit older than my teeth" is, I was sure, said by one of the Billies in either S&A or Swallowdale. However, I happened to mention it to someone recently, to be told it was a Jonathan Swift quote, which google seems to confirm. And now I come to look for it in the AR books, I actually can't find it at all. Am I making up the Ransome connection? Does anyone else recall this saying cropping up in any of the books?
