    Knowing that the minister was very fond of cherry brandy, one of the
    church elders offered to present him with a bottle on one consideration -
    that the pastor acknowledge receipt of the gift in the church paper.

    "Gladly," responded the good man.

    When the church magazine came out a few days later, the elder turned at
    once to the "appreciation" column. There he read: "The minister extends
    his thanks to Elder Brown for his gift of fruit and for the spirit in
    which it was given."
