ESSR,B .4DITORS : In. your last week's p..
I pet you ptiollshed an anecdote copied fro_ 4
1 the Ohio Oran, entitled 14 SCRIPTURE WEL
Aretar.n,"in;which the characters are Bisho
:Doane, of i New jersey, and the Rev. .16.
Peikins,:alsci;an Episcopal -Clergyman. Th
incident i 4 *ell told, but like many othe
good stori/s,Aacks one essential feature, viz:
truth, A Ipersonal acquaintance with hot
• parties enables me to set the matter right. '
The ane4dote is an old one, having first ap
peared. abi,nit ten years since, at which time
I was pi4siing . my studies under the diree.
tion of Bishop Doane, at Burlington, N. J.—
It was fir4lpublished, I believe, in an English
paper, under ;Ithe title of "The - Jolly Bishop
and the TelnPerance Priest;' and soon found
its way intp some of the American journals.
Inquiries to 4.scertaiti the truth of, the story
were iminWihtely made by friends of the
parties, ail ,t l the result was that a card from
I r.Terkins uppeared• in thetßur
lington (1s1,•-•Ji) Gazette, pronouncing it to be
utterly fals4, }and stating that he had never
dined with biShop Doane in his life. The
character..of the Rev. Mr. P. (who is a broth
er-in-law i:41111rs. Win. D. Cope, of this C 0.,)
- i •1
is a sufficient guarantee for the truth of his
statement. 1 The Organ must, haire found the
anecdote inisOe'oldpaper, oecoPied it from'
an authoritY ;',that derived it front such a
source, as it i identical with that, published
in 1845 or i 846. - ' '' • ' -, -
