DR. PITCAIRN had one Sunday stumbled into a Presbyterian church,
probably to beguile a few idle moments (for few will accuse that
gentleman of having been a warm admirer of Calvinism), and seeing the
parson apparently overwhelmed by the importance of his subject: What

if you were in his place, and had as little to say.--Come along with
me, friend, and let's have a glass together; you are too good a fellow
to be here, said Pitcairn, delighted with the man's repartee.
