A Wise Son Who Knew His Own Father

Jests Home

of large fortune, but knew that Miss Callander had won his son's heart.
Sheridan, expatiating on the folly of his son, at length exclaimed,

archly at his father said, Then, sir, you must borrow it. Sheridan
was tickled at the wit, and dropped the subject.
