The Anecdotage of Glasgow
The Rev. Principal Taylor and the English Nobleman

AN English nobleman arrived at an inn in Glasgow, and desired the waiter to send for the principal tailor. After a short time his lordship was waited upon by a venerable, respectable-looking gentleman, whose appearance did not comport with the description of personage whose services he required. Howsoever, he proceeded to business, and explained his wishes. The gentleman was at first amazed, but soon cleared up the mistake by informing his lordship he was the Rev.

The reverend gentleman was Principal, from 1803 to 1823.
