Mahmoud. For Ed Flynn.

Ed came in and reiterated his claim that he'd never asked for anything, which is, of course, not in agreement with history. He asked me and insisted that I be Mr. Roosevelt's running mate in 1944, he has asked for the appointment of numerous judges, etc. This time he wanted to breed a mare to Sonny Whitney's stallion Mahmoud! Wanted to ask.
