   Oops!  I had searched for just "soup to nuts"!...This was one of the pages I had tried to copy earlier today at NYU (not realizing it's closed).
   From the NEW YORK TIMES, 26 January 1886, "Niblo's Garden," pg. 5:

   Mr. Thatcher said that at his house they always dined in state, and went all the way from soup to walnuts; sometimes the intermediate courses were omitted, but they always had the walnuts.
