A CLERGYMAN, who had to preach before Archbishop Whately, begged to be
let off, saying, I hope your Grace will excuse my preaching next
Sunday.--Certainly, said the other indulgently. Sunday came, and the
archbishop said to him, Well! Mr. ----, what became of you? we expected
you to preach to-day.--Oh, your Grace said you would excuse my
preaching to-day.--Exactly; but I did not say I would excuse you
from preaching.
