Dunning And Lord Thurlow

WHEN it was the custom for barristers to leave chambers early, and to

finish their evenings at the coffee-houses in the neighborhood of the

inns of court, Lord Thurlow on some occasion wanted to see Dunning

privately. He went to the coffee-house frequented by him, and asked a

waiter if Mr. Dunning was there. The waiter, who was new in his place,

said he did not know him. Not know him! exclaimed Thurlow, with his

usual oaths; go into the room up stairs, and if you see any gentleman

like the knave of clubs, tell him he is particularly wanted. The

waiter went up, and forthwith reappeared followed by Dunning.
