‘A TRUE ”SON OF A GUN.” – The ”Champion Juvenile Shot of the World,” now performing at the Aquarium, styles himself ”Young Nimrod.” But that he, of course, uses a breechloader instead of the older-fashioned weapon, he might have been more fittingly styled ”Young Ramrod.”
(from Funny Folks, Hampshire Telegraph and Sussex Chronicle, Portsmouth, England, Saturday, 15 April 1882, p. 2f)
