our infamous distant relation appears again....

here is another mention of him from my reading....1861 The Civil War Awakening by Adam Goodheart...accompanied by google pictures of young William Cullen Bryant, old William Cullen Bryant, and the William Cullen Bryant statue at Bryant Park, NYC

No less a sage than William Cullen Bryant advised Abraham Lincoln: "Make no speeches, write no letters as a candidate, enter into no pledges, make no promises." June 1860
