The Anecdotage of Glasgow
Douglas of Barloch; or, Gravy and Grace


Mr. DOUGLAS was one day dining at the house of a lady friend, and it fell to his lot to carve in place of the hostess, who occupied the seat next to him. The joint was rather tough, and in addition to the necessary art, some degree of strength was required to cut it up properly. In endeavouring to separate a ligament the knife slipped, and a quantity of gravy spurted over the dress of the lady, who said:

"Oh, Mr. Douglas, don’t apologise, it is entirely my own fault—the meat should have been better prepared."

Oh, ma’am, dunna say that," gallantly replied Mr. Douglas, "let me take the blame—let me be all the gravy, and let yours be all the grace."
