The Anecdotage of Glasgow
Rev. Mr Thom as a peacemaker


THE late Dr. Hamilton of Lesrnahagow (who knew Mr. Thom personally) gave this specimen of his antipathies and peculiar humour. The doctor was present at the time. There was under discussion in the Presbytery of Glasgow some matter of dispute between them and the University, a lawsuit being threatened either on the one side or the other. Having allowed most of the members to express their minds on the subject, Mr. Thom rose, with much apparent solemnity, and said:-

"Moderator, I earnestly advise you against a plea with the University of Glasgow. Eh! sir, they are a learned body, Moderator, and an active body: they cheated me out of a chalder of meal."
