GOP, cont'd.

Under October 15, 1886, I cited the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Hans

Breitmann had once described the Republican party as, "De barty von de great

moral idee."

Hans Breitmann was not his real name. It was Charles G. Leland. You

probably have at least one of his books. He wrote a book on slang and cant

with some French guy named Barrere that supposedly is helpful to some of them

entomologists. :-)

I couldn't find the quote, though. Can anyone?
