Thirty six Years in the White House 1902

Thomas Franses Pendel ↠ 1 FREE DOWNLOAD

A book of recollections of a personal character that came under Mr Pendel's attention It is very interesting and throws many sidelights on the life of the White House Pendel writes In 1861 or 1862 the Metropolitan Police was established by Congress at the Capital and I made application for and received an appointment on the force I made the first arrest with the assistance of Buck Essex The case was that of a fellow named Grady one of the English Hill toughs A roundsman said to us Boys you take a walk down Seventh Street and if you see anything going on take a hand in it Just as we got opposite the Patent Office this Grady had assaulted or rather was assaulting a young fellow with a whip I went up and grabbed him and put him under arrest then took him to Suire Dunn's court and preferred charges against him The Suire was busy writing for some time When he got through he handed me the paper he was writing and I was so green at the business I did no. Written in 1902 this first hand account of the Presidents Lincoln Johnson Grant Hayes Garfield Arthur Cleveland Harrison and McKinley is a fascinating read More matter of fact as a policeman guarding the President and First Lady than a gossipy epistle It is a step back into time and truly worth readingFour stars because it could have developed the stories and elaborated details More than a diary or daily log book but less than a true historical account of the presidents More of a day in the life of a key person in the White House which spans thirty six years Even knowing this the historical perspective is rare and this book is worth reading

Very interestingThis book is interesting for the information it gives To think Mr Mendel served all these years under so many Presidents is a remarkable achievement The stories are not very well written but rather as if he was telling a story to a friend
