The Duke Of Wellington And The Aurist

ON one occasion the Duke's deafness was alluded to by Lady A----, who

asked if she was sitting on his right side, and if he had benefited by

the operations which she heard had been performed, and had been so

painful to him. He said, in reply, that the gentleman had been bold

enough to ask him for a certificate, but that he had really been of no

service to him, and that he could only answer him by saying, I tell you

what, I won't say a word about it.
