The 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 further asked:

"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."
