An Odd Bird

A LATE Duke of Norfolk had a fancy for owls, of which he kept several.

He called one, from the resemblance to the Chancellor, Lord Thurlow. The

duke's solicitor was once in conversation with his grace, when, to his

surprise, the owl-keeper came up and said, Please you, my lord, Lord

Thurlow's laid an egg.
