Subject:        Private Urination

I have somehow lost a reference to an early modern text in which a
servant documents his noble master's remarkably good manners by noting
that the lord essentially never used the chamber pot without turning
aside from the room to do so. Does anyone know where this anecdote
occurs?

Many thanks.
