Walpoliana





WHEN Mr. Naylor's father married his second wife, Naylor said, Father,

they say you are to be married to-day; are you?--Well, replied the

Bishop, and what is that to you?--Nay, nothing; only if you had told

me, I would have powdered my hair.



A tutor at Cambridge had been examining some lads in Latin; but in a

little while excused himself, and said he must speak English, for his

mouth was very sore.



After going out of the Commons, and fighting a duel with Mr. Chetwynd,

whom he wounded, my uncle (says Walpole) returned to the House, and

was so little moved as to speak immediately upon the cambric bill;

which made Swinny say, that it was a sign he was not ruffled.
