page 3 of 4, detail


"How about President Hayes? I chanced to turn over a file of your Albany Argus yesterday, and was all but blown off the stool by the tremendous indignation fulminations of that indignant sheet.-- But what's the use? life is short, and Hayes' term is four years, each of 365 days." -- Herman Melville on disputed election of 1876
