The ace of spades, or Spadille, was always the first trump; the ace of clubs (Basto) always the third.
"The Journal to Stella" by Jonathan Swift
In two hours Sir Asinus was sitting at spadille in the exceedingly undress costume of shirt, pantaloons, and silk stockings.
"The Youth of Jefferson" by Anonymous
Perhaps I shall hold Spadille every hand of the game.
"The Passionate Elopement" by Compton Mackenzie
