Fill 'er up

From the Little, Brown Book of Anecdotes:

On arrival at a Chicago hotel, Thomas Du Pont found that a lady who had previously occupied is room had left behind a frilly nightgown. He summoned the manager, handed him the garment, and instructed, "Fill it, and bring it back."

Du Pont was a businessman and politician -- a senator from Delaware in the early 1920s. He built the Delaware highway named after him and donated it to the state.
