My memory is indeed fading. In Twenty Days, on p. 131, it says, "Behind the hearse Robert Lincoln and Tad Lincoln rode in a carriage together."

Thanks Roger. Memory is a great deceiver. Perhaps there are some whose memories act like tape recordings or so, people who can record every detail, but I am not one of them. My memory is like patchwork and sections of my memory seem to have vanished completely. It was Stephen King who said that time is the thief of memory and he is right...

The hard part about memories regarding details such as these is that you may still be right on your first one Roger! Always seem to be lots of conflicting reports in different works when studying events like we do here. Lots of times on this forum there has been conflicting information regarding the same event.

Kees, I had not heard that Stephen King quote but I like it and it is certainly true!
