Repartee





    Wendell Phillips was traveling through Ohio once when he fell in with a car full of ministers returning from a convention. One of the ministers, a southerner from Kentucky, was naturally not very cordial to the opinions of the great abolitionist and set out to embarrass Mr. Phillips. So, before the group of ministers, he said:

    "You are Wendell Phillips, are you not?"

    "Yes," answered the great abolitionist.

    "And you are trying to free the niggers, aren't you?"

    "Yes, sir; I am."

    "Well, why do you preach your doctrines up here? Why don't you go over into Kentucky?"

    "Excuse me, are you a preacher?"

    "I am, sir."

    "Are you trying to save souls from hell?"

    "Yes, sir; that is my business."

    "Well, why don't you go there then?" asked Mr. Phillips.
