To the author of the sub-pages. Please create an account for yourself so we can talk to you properly.

See User talk: The main problem with your sub-pages is the titles. For example consider 4 Later Years in isolation in the context of all Wikipedia articles - it is totally meaningless. I have moved two of the subpages to better (imho) titles. I suggest you move the others. -- RHaworth 05:04, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

Leader needs work[edit]

The leader (paragraphs before the first section) needs work I think. I moved (and augmented) the material on Stewart's proposed appointment as U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, but, except for the first paragraph, much of what remains reads more like a parallel biography rather than an overview and would be better integrated into the main biography which actually seems to lack some of the details.

Tweed Ring[edit]

Is there a citation/reference for Henry Hilton (Stewart's lawyer & close friend) being associated with the Tweed ring? I believe Hilton fought Tweed. DEddy (talk) 02:25, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Judge Henry Hilton (1824 -1899) needs a Wikipedia article: Hilton, who managed to dissipate in two decades one of America's top ten fortunes of all time, enjoyed the position of President of the Department of Parks, 1870-72, under the "Tweed Charter". This was a political appointment. Hilton was an outstanding figure in anti-Semitism too. --Wetman (talk) 07:00, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

1872 Logo?[edit]

Since his executor, Judge Hilton, was instructed to destroy many (all?) of the store records, there is remarkably little direct documentary evidence remaining from the store. How/where did you find that wonderful logo? DEddy (talk) 15:50, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
