Meditation 12.17.18

A pen and ink doodle meditation in yellow, purples, and brown and a blurb about the speeding habits of President Grant.Dear Henry,

Today I learned that President Grant loved to speed and race through the streets of Washington D.C. in the style of  The Fast and the Furious.

Yes, yes. The hero of the Union would race through the streets like a madman - giving his horses "free reign" to see what they could do.

Speeding carriages were actually quite a problem in the capital, there were many reports of carriage-pedestrian injuries and fatalities and the local police were continually being called upon to "do something".

One of D.C's police officers, William H. West, actually began arresting people who were speeding.  Officer West even arrested President Grant.

He didn't appear in court.
