A 19th century slang dictionary

OK, strictly speaking, I'm straying a bit from the spelling bee here, but it is related.  I love this kind of 19th century period slang.  I should start incorporating more of it into everyday language.  i.e.:

"They began to suspicion, maybe, that they had got the wrong sow by the ear."

I reckon my friend, Jebediah Jones, will have a field day with this link.
