SCENE FROM "THE MAN OF THE

WORLD."

BY CHARLES MACKLIN.

SIR PERTINAX.

EGERTON.

Sir P. Zounds! sir, I will not hear a word aboot it: I insist upon it you are wrong: you should have paid your court till my lord, and not have scrupled swallowing a bumper or twa, or twenty, till oblige him.

Eger. Sir, I did drink his toast in a bumper.

Sir P. Yes, you did; but how, how ?-just as a bairn takes physic—with aversions and wry faces, which my lord observed : then, to mend the matter, the moment that he and the Colonel got intill a drunken dispute aboot religion, you slily slunged away.

Eger. I thought, sir, it was time to go when my lord insisted upon half-pint bumpers.

Sir P. Sir, that was not levelled at you, but at the Colonel, in order to try his bottom; but they aw agreed that you and I should drink out of sma' glasses.

Eger. But, sir, I beg pardon: I did not choose to drink any more.
