The Rue family in the U.S.A.

"There's rue for you, and here's some for me --
we may call it herb of grace o' Sundays.
O, you must wear your rue with a difference.
There's a daisy: I would give you some violets,
but they withered all when my father died --
they say, he made a good end."
-- Ophelia in Hamlet, Act IV, Sc. 5 --
