Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 14 page 78
Description:
Kew = A careless mason dropped a brick.  In tones of apprehension: Did the brick hit any one down there? The citizen with great difficulty extricated himself from the extinguisher into which his has had been transformed, replied, with considerable warmth: Yes Sir, it did, it hit me"! "That's right exclaimed the mason in tones of undisguised admiration, "Noble man! I would rather have wasted a thousand bricks than have you tell me a lie about it".  - Sprague confirms my opinion that Bentham's work is very uneven - that he separates "species" which are so close that others would not do so, even splitters, and lumps things which are far and away distinct.  For instance he separates Malacothrix obtusa and parviflora and refers Godetia biloba to tenella var. tenuifolia. :::::::::  January 2, 1906. English and AMerican Equivalents. Stopping (tooth) = Filling yet in U. S. we still stop a hole. School's broke up = School's out Haridresser = Barber (A barber in England is in a poor little shop). Pram = Baby-carriage. Limited = Incorporated. Luggage = Baggage. (Yet in AMerica we still lug things.) Machine = Wagon or Carriage
