Subject: see the elephant
Sorry to chime in so late on this topic and my apologies if someone
has already noted that an article on the phrase "to see the elephant"
appeared in The Pacific Historian, volume 12, no. 1, Winter 1968,
pages 23-29. One of the key sources in the article is Barrere and
Leland, A Dictionary of Slang, Jargon and Cant.
