"A Rowland for an Oliver."

"These were two of the most famous in the list of Charlemagne's twelve peers; and their exploits are rendered so ridicuously and equally extravagant by the old romancers, that from thence arose that saying amongst our plain and sensible ancestors of giving one a ' Rowland for his Oliver,' to signify the matching one incredible lie with another." Warburton.

"It is unseasonable and unwholesome in all months that have not an R in their name to eat an oyster." — Butler's Dyet's Dry Dinner. 1599.

"Hobson's Choice."

"Tobias Hobson was the first man in England that let out hackney horses. — When a man came for a horse, he was led into the stable, where there was a great choice, obliged him to take the horse which stood next door; so that every customer was alike ved according to his chance, from whence it beDvcrb, when what ought to be your election n, to say ' Hobson's Choice.'" —SpecWASHINGTON IRVING.
