And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!
John Wesley, at a considerable party, had been maintaining with great earnestness the doctrine of Vox populi, vox Dei, against his sister, a lady whose talents were not unworthy the family to which she belonged. At last the preacher, to put an end to the controversy, put his argument in the shape of a dictum, and said, "I tell you, sister, the voice of the people is the voice of God." "Yes," she replied, mildly, "it cried, 'Crucify Him, crucify Him.'" A more admirable answer was, perhaps, never given.
