I thought he was at the Chicago meeting but when I checked it in HFR, he wasn't.Turtle Fan 20:36, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

I thought he was there, too, obviously. Oh, well.

Odd that we both had the same misimpression. There must have been something there to throw us off, but if there was I couldn't find it.Turtle Fan 02:12, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

He does seem a "logical" choice. If I'd been paying attention to his death date, I could have saved myself some typing.

He'd be a logical choice if still alive. What I don't know is whether Lewis Powell/Payne's knife attack contributed to Seward's death. If it did, HT might have kept him around till 1882; but I've got a feeling it didn't.Turtle Fan 02:48, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
