The Anecdotage of Glasgow
Rev. Mr Thom settles the Justice of the Peace


THE Rev, Mr. Thom, riding home from Paisley, on a particular occasion, came up with two gentlemen, heritors of his parish, who had lately been made justices of the peace. They, seeing him well mounted as usual, were determined to pass a joke on him, and one of them accosted him thus:

"Well, Mr. Thom you are very unlike your master, for He was Content to ride an ass:" To which Mr. Thom rejoined:

"An ass! there’s no sic a beast to be gotten nowadays." The justice then asked:

"Ay, Mr. Thom, how’s that?" To which the reverend wit replied:

"Because they now make them a’ justices of the peace."
