Thus have I quyt the Millere in my tale.
(470)

The Reeve declares himself to have "quyt" the Miller with his tale. The Middle English verb "quiten" means to repay, but also to take revenge. The Reeve views his tale as revenge upon the Miller because of the way in which a fictional miller is punished in the course of it.
