Gramercy

.

Thank you much (the French grand merci). Thus Shakespeare, “Be it so, Titus, and gramercy too” (Titus Andronicus, i. 2). Again, “Gramercies, Tranio, well dost thou advise” (Taming of the Shrew, i. 1). When Gobbo says to Bassanio, “God bless your worship!” he replies, “Gramercy. Wouldst thou aught with me?” (Merchant of Venice, ii. 2.)
