Once when he was the guest of a rich merchant, who knew the master's weak spot, the latter fetched several bottles of very old and good wine from his cellar. Filling the glasses, he handed one to r.rahnis, at the sauie lime bowing reverently and saying: "Masler, (his Is the liralims among my wines." The composer sipped (lie wine, evidently with satisfaction, then lasted It again, and emptied his glass. "Yes," he said, with a contented smile, "not had, not hud at all, but, my dear friend, I should be delighted If you would let me also make the acquaintance ac-quaintance of your vine ISeetlioven."
