Bob -- I'd like to continue that dialogue about the Lincoln case and Booth's diary elsewhere -- either by email or through the online Lincoln Discussion Symposium. What do you say?
For about 15 mins., I am going to be aboard the replica Lincoln funeral car on April 23rd, at the car's new owner's estate (the Stone Gables Estate) in Elizabethtown, PA. Then I'll be sitting in the next car -- a restored 1860 passenger car. A newly created contemporary locomotive, decked out with Lincoln's picture and Amer. flags, will take me (and 39 other passengers) on a 1/2 mile ride in the Lincoln funeral train. (There will be perh. 5 more trips that afternoon.) It should be an interesting and unique experience for Lincoln admirers, not to mention a great photo op! One of our fellow Lindy kidnap buffs will be joining me. (It's not proper for me to give the name. You know how things are today; that person may not want the world to know there'll be nobody home that day! We are really looking forward to the event.
