The custom-house officer asked him to wait a minute And he waited.
Lazy Curator™ sez: Not a lot to say about this particular entry. Pretty cut-and-dry. However, I have gone on a long audit of past entries and underwent a much-needed update to the tags. I haven’t been completely thorough and haven’t tagged every last personage who ever appeared in one of these. I’ll let my reader base decide the demand; there aren’t any Samuel Tilden or Thomas Bayard tags yet, but if I get requests for such (or similar) I’ll go ahead and add them.
Also, I went on an exhaustive update (annotation-wise) of this classic entry. Enjoy!
