Modest Request

A GENTLEMAN travelling, was accosted by a man walking along the road,

who begged the favor of him to put his great coat, which he found very

heavy, into his carriage. With all my heart, said the gentleman; but

if we should not be travelling to the same place, how will you get your

coat?--Monsieur, answered the man with great naivete, I shall be

in it.
