Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Aristocracy
 
Those families, you know, are our upper-crust,—not upper ten thousand. [I want you to see Peel, Stanley, Graham, Shiel, Russell, Macaulay, Old Joe, and so on. They are all upper-crust here.—“Sam Slick in England,” Chap. XXIV. “Sam Slick” first appeared in a weekly paper of Nova Scotia, 1835. At present, there is no distinction among the upper ten thousand of the city.—Willis, Necessity for a Promenade Drive.]
        Cooper.—The Ways of the Hour, Chap. VI. (1850).
