William McKinley, remark to personal secretary George Cortelyou (1898)

Note: Today is the 170th anniversary of President William McKinley’s birthday. I’d guess that he is slightly better-known than Millard Fillmore, if not only because of Glee. And I have no idea if this comment was intended to be as funny as I find it. Especially given that I live in California these days 🙂 #occasionalpersonalcomment
