The Anecdotage of Glasgow
Andrew Henderson's language of the fleet

HENDERSON had a most peculiar mode of indicating his wants; indeed, everything he said or did partook of the character of the man. When dining, and after certain dishes had been partaken of, which, according to good old Northern custom, qualify for a dram, such as fish, cheese, etc., generally solids, and when the ardent solvent seemed tardy in forthcoming, he would address himself to some familiar friend, and complain:

"Man, Davit, if ye be wanting a dram, can ye no just seek it, instead o kicking my shins that way."
