Brandy, Straight

Straight from the Jerry Thomas Bartener's Guide (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Thomas_(bartender) ) :

"In serving this drink you simply put a piece of ice in a tumbler, and hand to your customer, with the bottle of brandy. This is very safe for a steady drink, but thought a straight beverage, it is often used on a bender.
