Barry's Powers Of Pleasing

SPRANGER BARRY, to his silver-toned voice, added all the powers of

persuasion. A carpenter, to whom he owed some money for work at the

Dublin Theatre, called at Barry's house, and was very clamorous in

demanding payment. Mr. Barry overhearing him, said from above, Don't be

in a passion; but do me the favor to walk upstairs, and we'll speak on

the business.--Not I, answered the man; you owe me one hundred

pounds already, and if you get me upstairs, you won't let me leave you

till you owe me two.
