  1. New York City papers of the same period are written in exactly the same idiom. Moreover, I find that as you progress through the 1840s and 50s, the tone becomes progressively more manic, supercilious, and devoted to finding ever new uses for gallows humor.

    • Supercilious is the perfect word! The editors/journalists of the old papers were certainly quick to judge. Thanks for commenting 🙂
