    What’s the significance of the black X’s?

    The different articles and stories usually begin in the middle of a page rather than starting on a fresh page. I cross out the bits at the beginning or end that belong to articles I don't include in full. Each issue had about 140 pages of material. I only include 25 or 35 pages in my posts so a lot doesn't make it.

    I picture George imagining his readers 100 years hence reaching for their dictionaries and savoring his words. Which reminds me - the diaries were published for general distribution in 1952. They have now been in circulation for longer than he was alive. In a manner of speaking I was also “published” in 1952, which gives me a vague feeling of kinship with GTS.

    Each edition is about 140 pages. I wish it was practical to print more of them. I wondered about the physical appearance. I figured they would be pretty thick but I didn’t guess a hard cover.

    Here are a piano concerto and a fantasy by Thalberg. Not that hearing them gives any insights to his ethnic heritage. Thalberg’s mother’s name was Stein, according to the bio, which could be Jewish. Otherwise I didn’t see any clues. It must have been a liberal age, since the different composers formed friendships and working relationships regardless of religion. Liszt and Mendelssohn, for example.

    From the Dramatis Personae section of the diary:

    “CHARLES E. STRONG. Cousin, law-partner and highly congenial companion of the diarist. They had many qualities in common: modesty, interest in literature, industry, and conscientious devotion to duty. Charles’s marriage to Eleanor Burrill Fearing in 1850 pleased both George and Ellen Strong. The two young couples saw much of each other.”

    I’m trying to decide if I should accept that Hillary is going to win this election, and if so, should we look for an obscure country lawyer to emerge during the next 4 years to take up the Republican torch in 2020.

    The first shoe of the Civil War has dropped with the election of Buchanan. The second one will drop with the decision in Dred Scott v. Sanford.

    With the election safely behind us the oral arguments for Dred Scott v. Sandford are scheduled for the middle of next month.

    The general election resulted in a three-way race between the Republican Fremont, the Southern-leaning Democrat James Buchanan, and American Party candidate Millard Fillmore. When the votes were counted, Weed’s advice to Seward proved correct. Though the Republican Party showed considerable strength throughout the North in its first national effort, winning eleven states, the South threw its strength behind Democrat James Buchanan, who emerged the victor. In addition to his overwhelming strength in the South, Buchanan captured four Northern states – Illinois, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey – the states destined to be the battleground in the 1860 election. Fillmore and the American Party captured only tiny Maryland.

    I just want to get this off my chest. November 4 - Election Day - was the single biggest posting day I had planned for 1856. So of course it is the day photobucket crashed, reminding me how dependent I am on that out-of-my-control factor. Well, I understand it should be back up tomorrow & I will catch up with the posts.

    It just won't be the same, though.

    [Continued from July 23 (reply #48) ]

    Lee tried to keep cheerful, but was depressed by the heat and by the arrival of news that his sister Mildred, Mrs. Edward Vernon Childe, who was only forty-five, had died in Paris.

    . Soon after the tidings of Mrs. Childe’s death, there came orders for the detail that Lee must by this time have learned to expect along with changing weather and hard fare: once again he was summoned to court-martial duty – not at Fort Mason or Fort Chadbourne, but 700 miles away, on the Rio Grande, at Ringgold Barracks. The assignment meant weary days of riding across Texas. He was twenty-seven days on the road, but he enjoyed the company of his friend Major George H. Thomas, who met him at Fort Mason.

    At Ringgold Barracks, where he arrived on September 28, work was tedious, and the principal case before the court was protracted by two Texas lawyers. On October 30, 1856, the court adjourned to Fort Brown, on the site of the present Brownsville. Lee was now in closer touch with the outside world, and he had already made friends among the families of the other officers, who, like himself, had to travel about to form courts-martial. His duties were not heavy. Soon he recovered his old poise and wrote home in better spirits.

    October 28. “I rise, Mr. President, for the purpose merely of stating for the information of this meeting” that I am aweary of ward-meetings, and that my soul is sick of vigilance committees. I suppose it’s one’s duty in this country to mix in these matters and that like the majority of my friends, I’ve been criminally negligent all my life in omitting to exercise my sovereign functions otherwise than by voting and in letting the machinery that is practically so much more important than any single vote take care of itself. But it’s a very dreary function. A ward-meeting is no Witenagemot. Gas, bad grammar, bad manners, bad taste, bad temper, unnecessary rhetoric, and excitement, and affected enthusiasm about “our” candidate for this or that twopenny office, agonizings and wrestlings over momentous points of order, conscientious misgivings whether we can “legally” take this question till we’ve taken that other question, dirty little substrata of intrigue and jealousy about chairmanships and the like. It doesn’t raise one’s estimate of humanity.

    Mr. Strong’s thoughts on slavery are forceful but nuanced. It will be interesting to see how this develops. It’s also interesting that he believes the “masses” of Northern voters are vehemently opposed to abolitionism or anything like it.

    That "conversation on race" we are always being told it is time for has been going on for a long time already.

    Strong mentions [William H.] Seward and Thurlow Weed near the beginning of today’s diary entry. Seward is the second term U.S. Senator from and former Governor of New York, and so one of the most prominent politicians in the state. Thurlow Weed, formerly a Whig, became an original Republican mover and shaker. Seward wants to become President as a Republcian in 1860 and Weed is going to help him in his quest. But for now they are Fremont men.

    October 15. Another meeting last night, got up by our Vigilance Committee among the “roughs” in Fifteenth Street away down by the East River. The assemblage of freemen was tolerably large, and its quality would have been improved by a little soap and water. Honorable Abram Wakeman *, our candidate for Congress, was chief speaker; his speech poor stuff, without even the merit of being limited to the capacity of the audience. . . .

    Writing hard tonight, save an hour in a dresscoat at Mrs. Dubois’. Her “sociable party” was small and slow like a young mud turtle. Dirty little Erastus Brooks ** there, looking quiet, stealthy, and malignant. His “dog noble” sobriquet is much too good for him, even judging from his outer man alone. If men are to develop into animal forms, each according to the law of his individual being, Erastus will be a very ugly, cunning, and vicious rat some of these days.
