(According to the rules you once framed, I also forgot the teasing, didn't I? Well, I think I need some coaching for that.)
Hint #2: It was something that is usually anyway needed for a baptizing ceremony.

RE: Stump the German
Very close, holy water is correct, but of very special origin. So, where from? (Would that be a German point if you nailed it?)

(Pssst....Eva! Try this -"Looks like the spaetzle brained Non Germans are having some trouble. That can only mean it's time for Hint #....)

(Richter's German. If he's right - take the point. Germans can't stump other Germans.)

RE: Stump the German
Mr. Richter has not entirely solved it yet. The main point is still missing. As for the teasig - I don't want to get the sack...

Hint #3: Mary herself had received the holy water from somewhere on the other side of the Atlantic.

RE: Stump the German
Brilliant, Laurie, the gift was a bottle of Jordan water! Mary mentioned it in a letter she wrote to her grandnephew Edward Lewis Baker Jr. from Pau on June 22, 1870.

So the score is 1:1.

Gene - You definitely got my point!

BTW: I may have dreamed this, but for some reason I think I read that the new Prince George was baptized with water from the River Jordan???

RE: Stump the German
What are you going to do on June 26, 2014, at noon EST? Watching the soccer world cup game, I hope! Even if the US team stumps the Germans and wins (like they beat us 4:3 last June, our B-team more precisely) I'll call it partly a German victory due to the great coach you have (we miss him). 2013 has been the most successful year in US soccer history, hasn't it? I would consider this a great deal "Klinsi's" achievement. (Forgive me this comment, like most Germans I'm not patriotic unnless it comes to soccer!)

PS: I've often unsuccessfully attempted to understand baseball rules, I admire anyone who does. With soccer, it's quite simple: get the round thing in the square thing...

RE: Stump the German
1.) Which CW general named his eldest son "Lincoln"?

2.) There was another general who named his son "Lincoln", but he denied an offer to take over a command. You will stump the German if you name him!

Note: According to my source, these were the only ones. I will double-check your guesses, but this was even for one of the sought-after quite difficult. Thus for replies goes AFAIK (and if you are very sure about another one I'll be willing to believe you).

Hint#1: Both were on the Union side.

Hint#2: The first one also wrote a Lincoln biography, and this was the second one:

RE: Stump the German
I'm stuck.
I can't even figure out what AFAIK is
As Far As I Know it stands for American Federation of Alternative Information (Klassified)

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?
