Boston is Beantown, Philadelphia is Quaker Town (gosh, they need a new

one), New York is the Big Apple, Chicago is the Windy City, Atlanta is

Hotlanta, Washington D. C. is...

This is from the Hampden Federalist (Springfield, Mass.), 30 November

1815, pg. 1, col. 5:

From the Philadelphia Aurora, Nov. 13.

_Smoke in the Wigwam_.--Smoke, they say, is an excellent means to catch

rats--it is reported that some rats from _Ghent_, in Flanders, been lately

making a sad bustle in the _Great Wigwam_, and that it has ended in _smoking

out the Old Rat_.


(Notes at bottom--ed.)

Great Wigwam=Washington.

Old Rat=Galatin.

Today, I suppose "the great wigwam" is Janet Reno's hair.
