Changing His Coat

A WEALTHY merchant of Fenchurch Street, lamenting to a confidential

friend that his daughter had eloped with one of his footmen, concluded,

by saying, Yet I wish to forgive the girl, and receive her husband, as

it is now too late to part them. But then his condition; how can I

introduce him?--Nonsense, replied his companion; introduce him as a

Liveryman of the city of London. What is more honorable?
