Sleep Tight

Posted by Fiona Hunter on January 14, 2000

I'm trying to find ou about the phrase "sleep tight" Does anyone know where the theory that it orginates from beds being strung with ropes which went slack after a time comes from? I need more background information, preferably by Tuesday 18 January. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
