At a dinner party given in the west end of London, when the ladies had retired, the conversation of the gentlemen turned to what was dishonoring to Christ. In the midst of their lecherous conversation and coarse jests, one guest was noticed to be particularly silent. To their surprise, he asked that the bell be rung and a servant called, and when the servant responded, he said, My carriage, please. Taking his hat and coat from the rack, and gathering his gloves into his hand, he politely bowed himself from the room, saying as he went, You will pardon my departure, but I am a Christian. That was not a clergyman; that was the popular Prime Minister of Queen Victoria's time, Sir Robert Peel.
