Anecdotage of Glasgow
Rev. Mr Thom's balance of evils
REV. Mr. Thom was appointed by the
Presbytery to assist at the induction of a young clergyman of whose
talents he had a very mean opinion. Returning late in the evening, he
met an aged member of his own session, near the entry to the manse, who
inquired for his minister, and
"Whaur he had been?"
Mr. Thom explained; and was
"And did you ride your poor mare
aí the way and back again ? Youíll fell the trusty beast!"
To which Mr. Thorn rejoined:
"Aní if it should, John, itís only
felling ae brute by settling anither."
