A lawyer missed his silk handkerchief and accused an Irishman of
stealing it. After some confusion, the lawyer found the handkerchief
in his pocket and apologized to the Irishman for calling him a thief.
"Never mind at all," said the Irishman. "You thought
I was a thief and I mistook you as a gentleman."
