Al­most met his maker

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IMUCH en­joyed Jonathan Self’s article on fa­mous last words (Novem­ber 9), which re­minded me of the fol­low­ing in­ci­dent. The in­cum­bent of a par­ish in Worces­ter­shire was on his way to take Even­song one Sun­day, when he had quite a se­ri­ous col­li­sion, the vicar’s car end­ing up in a ditch. The other driver, a young man of the par­ish, ran over and opened the car door to see a black­robed body on the floor. ‘Oh my God,’ he ex­claimed, to which the re­ply from the floor was ‘Not your God—only your vicar’. Jonathan Reeves, Rad­nor­shire
