Left Out at Pentecost

John Buchan (1875-1940), Greenmantle (New York: Grosset & Dunlap, ©1916), p. 40:
"What about language?" I asked. "You're all right, Sandy?"

"I know German fairly well; and I can pass anywhere as a Turk. The first will do for eavesdropping and the second for ordinary business."

"And you?" I asked Blenkiron.

"I was left out at Pentecost," he said. "I regret to confess I have no gift of tongues."
