'The Expedition of Humphry Clinker' was the last of the picaresque novels of Tobias Smollett, first published in 1771, and is considered by many to be Smollett's best and funniest work. The title character is a stableman at an inn who, after various romantic interludes, suffers false imprisonment but is rescued and returned to his sweetheart, the maid Winifred Jenkins.
