A gentleman whose travel-talks are known throughout the world tells the following on himself:
"I was booked for a lecture one night at a little place in Scotland four miles from a railway station.
"The 'chairman' of the occasion, after introducing me as 'the mon wha's coom here tae broaden oor intellects,' said that he felt a wee bit of prayer would not be out of place.
"'O Lord,' he continued, 'put it intae the heart of this mon tae speak the truth, the hale truth, and naething but the truth, and gie us grace tae understan' him.'
"Then, with a glance at me, the chairman said, 'I've been a traveler meself!'" - Fenimore Marlin.
