A Slight Difference

A CLERGYMAN, who had to preach before Archbishop Whately, begged to be

let off, saying, I hope your Grace will excuse my preaching next

Sunday.--Certainly, said the other indulgently. Sunday came, and the

archbishop said to him, Well! Mr. ----, what became of you? we expected

you to preach to-day.--Oh, your Grace said you would excuse my

preaching to-day.--Exactly; but I did not say I would excuse you

from preaching.
