Old Pete and Mr. Paul

In a discussion of 1 Peter 3:7, Greg Krehbiel affectionately calls Saint Peter 'old Pete.' This reminds me of a story told by G.K. Chesterton:
A bishop is said to have complained of a Non-conformist saying Paul instead of Saint Paul; and to have added, "He might at least have called him Mr. Paul."
Unfortunately I've lost the source of this Chestertonian quotation.
