A Piece Of Plate





A YOUNG actor having played a part tolerably well, Elliston one evening

called him into the green-room, and addressed him to this effect:

Young man, you have not only pleased the public, but you have pleased

me; and, as a slight token of my regard and good wishes, I beg your

acceptance of a small piece of plate. It was, beyond all question, a

very small piece, for it was a silver toothpick!
