Well Matched

DR. BUSBY, whose figure was beneath the common size, was one day

accosted in a public coffee-room by an Irish baronet of colossal

politely making way, replied, Pass, O Pigmy!--O, sir, said the

baronet, my expression alluded to the size of your intellect.--And

my expression, sir, said the doctor, to the size of yours.
