Spiritual And Spirituous

DR. PITCAIRN had one Sunday stumbled into a Presbyterian church,

probably to beguile a few idle moments (for few will accuse that

gentleman of having been a warm admirer of Calvinism), and seeing the

parson apparently overwhelmed by the importance of his subject: What

makes the man greet? said Pitcairn to a fellow that stood near him.

By my faith, sir, answered the other, you would perhaps greet, too,

if you were in his place, and had as little to say.--Come along with

me, friend, and let's have a glass together; you are too good a fellow

to be here, said Pitcairn, delighted with the man's repartee.
