After the death of Andrew Jackson the following conversation is said to
have occurred between an Anti-Jackson broker and a Democratic merchant:
MERCHANT (_with a sigh_)--"Well, the old General is dead."
BROKER (_with a shrug_)--"Yes, he's gone at last."
MERCHANT (_not appreciating the shrug_)--"Well, sir, he was a good man."
BROKER (_with shrug more pronounced_)--"I don't know about that."
MERCHANT (_energetically_)--"He was a good man, sir. If any man has
gone to heaven, General Jackson has gone to heaven."
BROKER (_doggedly_)--"I don't know about that."
MERCHANT--"Well, sir, I tell you that if Andrew Jackson had made up his
mind to go to heaven, you may depend upon it he's there."
