Livermore's Cooperative Womanhood in the State, p.293.


Robert Louis Stevenson is one of the authors of a comment, in The
Wrecker about the Little Italy area of San Francisco, in 1891,
Scribner's magazine, 10 #4 (October), p.429.


The "Little Italy" of Ellis Island is mentioned in at least two MOA
Cornell sources.

The concept of a room being a "little Italy", in Boston, is presented in

"as we had made a little Italy together"


Most of the other sources presented at MOA Cornell are from the 1890s.
I didn't check all of them.
