Can anyone with a copy of the first edition of Mencken's American Language
(1919) handy check for me the exact wording and chapter number of the
following quote:

Philadelphia is the most pecksniffian of American cities, and thus
probably leads the world.
        H. L. Mencken, The American Language (1919)
