LORD CHANCELLOR HARDWICK'S bailiff, having been ordered by his lady to

procure a sow of a particular description, came one day into the

dining-room when full of company, proclaiming with a burst of joy he

could not suppress, I have been at Royston fair, my lady, and I have

got a sow exactly of your ladyship's size.
