The Pitcher
Asa Peaco was going down the cellar stairs of his home, when making a misstep he fell to the bottom. Lucinda realizing that he might have broken the pitcher he carried, called out, "Asa, have you broken that pitcher?" Asa somewhat mentally disturbed by her keen interest in the welfare of the crockery, replied, "No, by G--, but I will." and suiting the action to his words he threw it against the cellar wall.
