LORD, n. In American society, an English tourist above the state of a costermonger, as, lord 'Aberdasher, Lord Hartisan and so forth. The traveling Briton of lesser degree is addressed as 'Sir,' as, Sir 'Arry Donkiboi, or 'Amstead 'Eath. The word 'Lord' is sometimes used, also, as a title of the Supreme Being; but this is thought to be rather flattery than true reverence.   Miss Sallie Ann. -Ambrose Bierce
