    Ancestral Art

    While visiting an antique shop one day, William Gladstone encountered an early 17th Century portrait depicting an aristocrat in elaborate Spanish dress, complete with frills, plumed hat and lace cuffs.

    Though much enamored with the work, Gladstone deemed the price too high and reluctantly left. Some time later, he was astonished to find his beloved portrait hanging in the home of a wealthy London merchant. "It's a portrait of one of my ancestors," the man proudly declared, "a minister at the Court of Queen Elizabeth." "Three pounds less," Gladstone drily replied, "and he would have been my ancestor."
