A rather battered parcel addressed to the local
minister had arrived at the village Post Office. Through the openings in the
torn wrapping it could be easily seen that a supply of Bibles was in transit.
Noting the expensive bindings and the beautiful gilt pages the postie thought
that it would be advisable to hand over his precious charge to the minister
When handing over his parcel later in the day he
remarked to the minister with some severity :
"Fancy sendin guid Bibles in sic a like
paircel. Oniebodie a bittie releegious micht hae helpit his-sel ti ane or twa."
