You are so right, Toia. Many books state that while in Taltavul's Booth said something like, "When I leave the stage, I will be the most famous man in America." However, over the years, I have searched in vain for an original source for that. In my own mind I have considered Booth's statement more legend than fact. Can anyone point me to a legitimate source for Booth's statement?
