Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
He was in logic a great critic,
Profoundly skilled in analytic:
He could distinguish, and divide
A hair ’twixt south and south-west side;
On either which he would dispute,
Confute, change hands, and still confute.

        Swift.—Remarks upon a Book. (Roscoe’s Ed. Vol. 2, pa. 181.)
