Lord Tenterden contracted such an inveterate habit of
keeping himself and everybody else to the precise matter in hand, that

would take venison, and receiving what he deemed an evasive reply, "Thank

retorted, "That, sir, is no answer to my question; I ask you again if you
will take venison, and I will trouble you to say yes or no, without further
prevarication."
