  • We have some idea of sending out our old friend, the Brook Green Volunteer, as a special correspondent, whose military education on the Scrubs of Wormwood, and whose counterscarping in the ditch that divides Hammersmith from Knotting Hill, must have given him a fund of military knowledge that would be useful to him in his reporting capacity.

    --The Foreign Correspondent, Punch 14: 210 (1848)
