Houston Tri-Weekly March 27, 1865
and in moments I am printing an article headed "Headquarters Sims' Regiment T. M. V."
This morning I had Cousin Milton picking up the Empress Carlotta's glove [Carlotta or Carlotta or Charlotte, first cousin to Queen Victoria, first cousin to Prince Albert) and kissing it before he offered to hand it to her. Same year. What a difference a few months makes! And when did Milton enter Mexico? Why, July 22, 1865, of course. The Internet Tells Me So.
Do I know the heart and soul of Cousin Milton? Well, maybe not, but that 7 column article by the pre-eminent Texas journalist Charles L. Martin, the one no scholar has cited, gets me closer.
I always told my students that all they had to do was to put out their hands.
Now I would tell them not to forget to stand up and stretch every half an hour or so.
