admiral of the blue
Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
Happiness is a sunbeam which may pass through a thousand bosoms without losing a particle of its original ray; nay, when it strikes on a kindred heart, like the converged light on a mirror, it reflects itself with redoubled brightness. It is not perfected till it is shared.Jane Porter
- (idiomatic) (vulgar) A landlord or publican wearing a blue apron, as was formerly the custom among men of that vocation.
