  They say that the lady from Philadelphia who is staying in town is very wise. Suppose I go ask her what is best to be done.
        Lucretia P. Hale—Peterkin Papers. Ch. I.
Hail! Philadelphia, tho’ Quaker thou be,
The birth-day of medical honors to thee
In this country belongs; ’twas thou caught the flame,
That crossing the ocean from Englishmen came
And kindled the fires of Wisdom and Knowledge,
Inspired the student, erected a college,
First held a commencement with suitable state,
In the year of our Lord, seventeen sixty-eight.
        Wm. Todd Helmuth—The Story of a City Doctor.
