Reminiscences of Fred Seward

Another free book added to The Library; Fred Seward’s Reminiscences of a War-Time Statesman and Diplomat. Fred was the son and wartime administrator of William H. Seward, Secretary of State. He was gravely injured in the assassination attempt on his father, as part of the plot that killed Lincoln. I have no idea if this book contains much of interest, but given his proximity to the great men and his unwitting participation in that fateful night, I imagine there’ll be an anecdote or two worth reading.
