Quid Pro Quo

Campbell relates:--"Turner, the painter, is a ready wit. Once at a

dinner where several artists, amateurs, and literary men were convened,

a poet, by way of being facetious, proposed as a toast the health of the

painters and glaziers of Great Britain. The toast was drunk; and

Turner, after returning thanks for it, proposed the health of the

British paper-stainers."
