Excellent, Marcus. I had no doubt you would do well. I must be reading the wrong books!
Marcus Lzuru
 
I do have a question though: there are enough stories that Hancock actually said something after he signed. I just don't know what it was... historically speaking.

He did on that miniseries 'Sons of Liberty', but it was full of fabrications anyway.
Charles Sumner got 100%. Amazing! But then again, when you have been around that long, you should know a lot!
Marcus Lzuru
