Mr. F. C. Phillips In bis book "My
Varied Life" tells how the late Sir
George Uoneyman an Infamous
writer sent down from the bench to
a friend of his a leading Q. C a
little note. Not able to make head
nor tall of It tho barrister scribbled
something equally undecipherable
upon n half-sheet of notopaper and
passed It up to the Judge. Sir George
looked annoyed and when the court
rose snld to bit friend: "What do
you mean by this? I asked you to
come and dine with me tonight."
"Yes" said the barrister "and I re-
plied that I thould be extremely glad
to do so."
