Does anyone have ready access to the first edition (1971) of John Gardner's book, Grendel?  If so, I would be grateful for verification of the last lines of the book, which I believe are:

"Poor Grendel's had an accident," I whisper.  "So may you all."

I need to verify the exact wording and punctuation and italicization and what is the number of the chapter in which it appears.
