(Fables of Aesop, Caxton Translation, Vol 15, 1484
Thou shalt have a place also without the camp, where thou shalt go forth abroad: And
thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon:
and it shall be when thy ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and thou shalt turn back, and cover that which cometh from thee.
