    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteTOPE, v. To tipple, booze, swill, soak, guzzle, lush, bib, or swig.

With what an easy grace the whisky-loving American pushed the temperate Spaniard out of his possessions!

Wherefore the estimable old ladies who abolished the canteen from the American army may justly boast of having materially augmented the nation's military power.
