Hic-cupping





A GENTLEMAN, at whose house Swift was dining in Ireland, after dinner

introduced remarkably small hock-glasses, and at length turning to Swift

addressed him: Mr. Dean, I shall be happy to take a glass of hic, haec,

hoc, with you.--Sir, rejoined the doctor, I shall be happy to

comply, but it must be out of a hujus glass.
