The Anecdotage of Glasgow
Rev. Professor Eadie on a cynic's couplet

AFTER fully a quarter of a century of ministerial labour as pastor of Cambridge Street U.P. Church, the doctor was called to Lansdowne Church, which had been erected in Great Western Road, at the north-east end of Kelvin Bridge, by some of the Hillhead and West End members of his first charge, at a cost of 12,000. Some bitterness seems to have been felt on the part of some of those left., behind, or, if not, in an ebullition of spleen, someone or other wrote on the wall of the handsome new edifice,

"This church was not built for the poor and needy, But for the rich and Dr. Eadie."

Upon being told of which, the doctor smilingly remarked with a broad Scottish pronunciation:

"That is not for eadification."
