So, if we see that material of Ms. Struthers's first-hand account again, hopefully under the same link, we shall link to it later. It is not a great loss, but it was interesting as referencing uniquely Miss H. Trueman, leading more modern readers to ponder the inevitable interesting coincidence of names which that conveys, not because of any paranormal suggestion but for its implications in reality regarding subsequent events and the prompting in some of the untoward by just such coincidences of names, dates, locations and the like. The many parallels which may be found between the Kennedy and Lincoln assassinations, we posit, were, for the most part, though probably not in all instances, consciously intended as a way to distract from the inquiry into there being more than a lone-nut gunman, making any such references seem strange or lunatic. In other words, they were, by design, intended to lend a spooky quality to the fact of murder, to channel the investigation into the purely mundane, where "facts", that which are the usual forms of evidence, ballistics, blood, fingerprints, eyewitness accounts, autopsy reports, and the like, can always be carefully tailored and controlled to point to one conclusion, especially when there is no trial subject to ordinary rules of evidence and argument. But, many times, it is just such coincidences which unravel the whole untoward act and reveal the most likely participants and co-conspirators, in reality. Else, for instance, why make mention of John Wilkes Booth as a Shakespearean actor who had performed in Julius Caesar? Why make reference to anything regarding the unconscious or conscious mind, save the particulars in the visible, mundane world surrounding the act itself in any such case, including the psychological make-up of the alleged perpetrator? That which is coincidental, empirically verifiable as same, redundantly so, is probative to determine a mindset, a mind print if you will, as surely as are physical fingerprints, if not under the recognized rules of evidence, at least before the court of history, in which there never is a truly final verdict, at least not until the final tick of time itself.
Anyway, having said all that for the good of all, we trust, we find that the material is back online, as fresh as ever. Thank ye. Thank ye very much.
We note that the first performance of Our American Cousin, taking place at Laura Keene's Theater, 622-624 Broadway in New York, occurred, by coincidence, on October 15, 1858, the date of the last debate, held at Alton, Illinois, between Senator Stephen Douglas and Abraham Lincoln anent the issue of slavery, during their race for the Senate seat.
