Speaker Reed, Ambassador Choate and Senator Westcott were chatting together one evening.  Mr Choate said with great solemnity “Well, gentlemen, I have not drunk whiskey, played cards for money, or attended a horse race in twenty eighth years”.

“My gracious!, exclaimed Senator Westcott admiringly.

I wish I could say that.”

“Why don’t you?, blandly inquired Mr Reed.

“Choate did”.

Churchil’s LIE

 

A generation ago, when Prime minister Winston Churchill was still a member of the Liberal Party, he rose in Commons to defend his party against the charge that they had deliberately misrepresented the Conservative party.  The Liberals have accused The Conservative party of practising slavery in South Africa because they kept negro labourers behind barbed wire compounds under severe restrictions.

 

Churchill remarked, “I admit the term slavery might be a terminological inexactitude”.

At this Joseph Chamberlain,father of the late prime minister Neville Chamberlain, interrupted,

“I prefer the ugly little English three letter word – l i e”

A certain young California politician, notorious for lying, had once been unwittingly led into speaking the truth. Noah Brooks was explaining the situation to President Lincoln, who immediately reminded himself of a story, saying that he recalled a similar circumstance about a negro barber in Illinois, who was a great liar. A crowd in front of a barber shop stood one evening gazing with admiration at the planet Jupiter.

 

“Sho, said the barber, I have seen that star before. I seen him way down in Georgy”,said Lincoln, like your California friend, he told the truth, but thought he was lying.”
