Sir James Mackintosh's Humour

Sir James Mackintosh had a great deal of humour; and, among many other

examples of it, he kept a dinner-party at his own house for two or three

hours in a roar of laughter, playing upon the simplicity of a Scotch

cousin, who had mistaken the Rev. Sydney Smith for his gallant synonym,

the hero of Acre.
