Eighty Days by Michael Ceraolo


               July 14, 1881

Garfield:

I once considered correspondence
to be the great drudgery of my life,
but now my goal is to recover enough
to resume that 'great drudgery'


Guiteau:

"When all these matters,
my life,
             my address
                                etc.
get before the public and they know just why
I assassinated the president
there will be a big reaction in my favor
I don't know how long I will have to remain here
It depends on how soon the president dies."
