Proof Impression

MR. BETHEL, an Irish barrister, when the question of the Union was in

debate, like all the junior barristers published pamphlets upon the

subject. Mr. Lysaght met this pamphleteer in the hall of the Four

Courts, and in a friendly way, said, Zounds! Bethel, I wonder you never

told me you had published a pamphlet on the Union. The one I saw

contained some of the best things I have yet seen in any pamphlet upon

the subject.--I'm very proud you think so, said the other, rubbing

his hands with satisfaction; and pray, what are the things that pleased

you so much?--Why, replied Lysaght, as I passed by a pastry-cook's

shop this morning, I saw a girl come out with three hot mince-pies

wrapped up in one of your works.
