ONE of Cromwell's granddaughters was remarkable for her vivacity and

humor. One summer, being in company at Tunbridge Wells, a gentleman

having taken great offence at some sarcastic observation she made,

intending to insult her, said, You need not give yourself such airs,

madam; you know your grandfather was hanged.--To which she instantly

replied, But not till he was dead.
