Excerpt from Historical Sketches of the Formation and Founders of the Philadelphia Hose Company: Being the First Hose Company Instituted in the City of Philadelphia, December 15, 1803; Taken From Addresses Delivered Before the Company The founders of the Philadelphia Hose Company (the first Hose Company instituted in Philadelphia) were: Reuben Haines, Roberts Vaux, Joseph Parker, Samuel N. Lewis, Abraham L. Pennock, William Morrison, Joseph Warner and William Morris. They were sons of highly respectable parents, old citizens of Philadelphia. At the time of their first meeting for the purpose of organization, none of them were twenty-one years of age. The date of their primary meeting was 12 mo. 15, 1803. All of them were members, or descendants of members, of the Society of Friends, commonly called Quakers. Each was, at the time, either apprenticed to some skillful handicraft, or engaged in acquiring the knowledge of mercantile business.

"Bummel durch Europa" (Original: "A Tramp Abroad") ist ein halb-fiktiver, satirischer Reisebericht des amerikanischen Autors Mark Twain, der erstmals 1880 erschien. Das Buch beschreibt eine Reise von zwei Freunden durch Deutschland, die Alpen und Italien im Jahr 1878. Der Ich-Erzähler ist Mark Twain selbst, der Reisebegleiter seinem Freund Joseph Twichell nachgebildet. Beide Reisenden hatten sich eigentlich vorgenommen, den größten Teil des Weges zu Fuß zurückzulegen, finden dann aber doch ständig andere Möglichkeiten der Fortbewegung. Twain spielt auf dieser Reise den typischen amerikanischen Touristen jener Zeit, der angeblich alles sofort versteht, was er sieht, in Wahrheit aber häufig daneben liegt.
