Save in a whisper

Poe's Pit & the Pendulum:

And now, as I still continued to step cautiously onward, there came thronging upon my recollection a thousand vague rumours of the horrors of Toledo. Of the dungeons there had been strange things narrated -- fables I had always deemed them -- but yet strange, and too ghastly to repeat, save in a whisper.

I recall seeing in a literary journal on early detective fiction that Poe was actually talking about Maumee, Ohio and not Toledo.

Man, Maumee's a hole.
