H. John Wesley once had for a traveling companion an officer who was intelligent and agreeable in conversation; but there was one serious drawback- his profanity. When they changed vehicles, Wesley took the officer aside and, after expressing the pleasure he had enjoyed in his company, said he had a great favor to ask him. The young officer replied, “I will take great pleasure in obliging you, for I am sure you will not make an unreasonable request.” “Then,” said Wesley, “as we have to travel together some distance, I beg that, if I should forget myself and just start swearing, that you will kindly reprove me.” The officer immediately saw the motive and felt the force of the request and smiling said. “None but Mr. Wesley could have conceived a reproof in such a manner.” It worked like a charm.
