- Her traveling- dress, like ours, was of cirsacas, but ours was cotton, while hers was silk, in broad rays of gray and blue; and as the weather was a little cool that morning, she had exchanged the unfailing casaquin for a sort of camail to match the dress, and trimmed, like the capotte, with a line of white fur. - "Strange True Stories of Louisiana", George Washington Cable.
- Her petticoat was very short, lightly puffed on the sides, and ornamented only with two very long pockets trimmed like the camail. - "Strange True Stories of Louisiana", George Washington Cable.
- I went out in my rochet and camail, dealing out benedictions to the people on my right and left, preaching obedience, exerting all my endeavours to appease the tumult, and telling them the Queen had assured me that, provided they would disperse, she would restore Broussel. - "The Memoirs of Cardinal de Retz, Complete", Jean Francois Paul de Gondi, Cardinal de Retz.
