    More Information: "Seymour [d.1819] was one of the actors at the Theatre Royal Norwich ans apparently cultivated his own standing as one of Cedworth's [John Howe, Baron Chedworth] close intellectual companions... Seymour published, by subscription, a two-volume opus with a fashionably convoluted title: Remarks... Seymour includes one hundred and twenty-two citations ascribed to Chedworth but the vast accumulation of comments are Seymour's own."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
