PHILADELPHIA
[ Also see Cities ]

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 Peabody 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.
      - William Tod Helmuth,
        The Story of a City Doctor
