JEMMY GORDON, the Cambridge eccentric, when he happened to be without

shoes or stockings, one day came in contact with a person of very

indifferent character. The gentleman, pitying his condition, told him,

if he called at his house, he would give him a pair of shoes. Excuse

me, sir, replied Jemmy, assuming a contemptuous air, I would not stand

in your shoes for all the world!
