a better alarm fire in October twentieth a T T K Daniel Sickles was born into an old to do New York family his father was a patent lawyer and politician is expected that Daniel Fathers follower into those professions ok but as the group became apparent he might not have the temperament for the needed education oak although totally could be said for my I've had teachers who wrote that on my evaluation should all my evaluations were to form connections and sent his temperament he was sent at age twenty to live with the DuPont family while completing his studies part the patriarch had been Lorenzo da Ponte the writer and Catholic priest even though the pond took vows of celibacy so cranked out of touch it's it's it's not I'm cleaning it I'm thinking it added there's no project between this and act grade he would he kept saying adopt them I thought this one I adapted the yarn I put it in the here we are again another America o Daniel came to live with the family of recording your reaction was died of a He who were so worried do you so Dave can live with the family at eight a year after the priest guy died with all the kids of his you know one of the daughters Maria was the same age as Dale and rumors began that the two are having an affair ok these I may have been helped because her husband was twenty six years older than her she had been married which is fifteen how was that ever a thing for I mean how it's we have so much in common adolescence the list goes on and during adolescence and middle wage Right rather creepy but I looked at some of your drawings they're great and I'm the beds the and they had a three year old daughter named Theresa was Chivas is the list of Arizona without their last name was Abe as Uli so Dale studies improved as his parents hoped when the next upon head of the family died and you moved out of house first he became a printers Apprentice is the deal on the offices of ex U S Attorney General Benjamin Butler ok we just hear it from the last late the next one the next I I said we'll hear about in the future to save guy ok out apprentices Apprentice know he was just as the printers or printers Apprentice The Apprentice The Apprentice so you're going to want to make a bunch of copies of the brig coffee in there ok so going on and make a bunch of copies and bring coffee and then when you can okay I write and I got to get idea won fifteen of golf it okay actually today the buses go a little early one fifteen He golfing yes you heard yet he's going golfing yeah he also they also quickly picked up a reputation as a ladies man particularly one who enjoy prostitutes are you ladies man when you're just hiring or as if boys swim and I was a secret I give them money constant flow of cash the printers office was near five points with seventeen brothels nearby I Daniel was like we'd stores day it was actually considered quote a notorious user of prostitutes it's not a ladies man well I mean they also became aware that he could pick up young and more innocent girls at the corner of Duane and Broadway known as the work became more successfully found the more fancy prostitutes rat the Broadway Theatre in the gallery his love of prostitutes may have been why he in eighteen forty four raised thousand dollars for a political pamphlet that he never made a wow wow Jane funk was born jumpin n was born on march in in March eighteen twenty three from downtown a farmer in upstate New York I locked her mother died when she was eight she got a basic education was considered a bit of a nerd then when she was seventeen she became a victim of what Moore were farmers consider to be a major social problem at the time to head this he seduce or she became a seduce or how she was a victim of his victim Asus says or older man who seduced young naive women usually after promising to marry them and after they had their way with the young woman seduces would leave them the young women were then considered to be quote ruin what you know it like well somebody put something in there a couple a couple things one would somebody spend their first and literally seduce are usually hear about Miller ok am aware of that but obviously but the idea that it's yeah like the idea that I mean again like it's the same it is this crazy double standard just like you think is a double foul of exec to so many women while ago Gerald what about your life cotton sheeting that ho are yep pretty much is what I mean just the idea that someone's ruined yeah like the last thing now that the CRC I Yeah Yeah which even makes which makes the idea of like suicide bombing to go get seventy six virgins in heaven like that is I don't you think you could tweak their heaven a little bit the word you know you get thirty virgins that thirty six hole oars let's see oh yeah now with more power they were so then these women were shunned by middle class Victorian society and this being seduced by seduce or was the third most common cause of prostitution of time because they're just generally be seduced you would be seduce your only option would be to basically go into a life of prostitution right now makes sense yet totally yeah yeah you sever them as your home are OK where do I work yes this place down the street ok so after Jane even seduce and abandon she went to New York to stay with her brother John who was a Carpenter Jane got work at a hotel but it was not working out and in eighteen forty three she started working a brothel at one hundred and twenty Church St she picked up she picked the name Fanny white boy that is in town and I mean you're going to see things differently yeah okay cause people Fanny Fanny that man is a name or she's really cause of pussy as I meet Fanny light sounds like something they sell at CVS I mean look there's a lot of fucking which people coming over on boats now so the idea that Fanny might be a common street name is very possible should share and I guess if you take about how long you'd see white could also be considered you know dragging a Democrat but Fenty did not have the Arab victimhood that many of the other sex workers did she was smart and use beautiful a few months later she moved to Julia Brown's brothel touching draft played Fanny light brown yet anyway Brown meat Fannie Brown Julie Brown was the best known prostitute in America and was in several popular torque it's What's this is such a weird Lake Ida tell you that we just like it at that I am so much crazy shit was taken so seriously and yet the idea that prostitution was like but on page two of the past little while to come near Me Not is Bell cup go see the Brooklyn Bridge then a bunch of the judgment to come see the World's Biggest the mom and I then have your way was then was very shrewd in May eighteen forty seven at twenty four years old she was managing a brothel that was also the meat year she met Daniel Sickles soon they had developed a romantic relationship and he no longer had to pay for services either way she better keep her name Fanny Sickles also sounds unsafe and Sickles terrible it's freezing them and though it was known and Dale did give her expensive gifts in cash he just didn't have to because he was her man right one I am one night if any servant was accused of stealing money from one of fans rooms the service charge but in court on the witness stand proclaimed quote you know Miss White although they took was a bundle of keys from Daniel Sickles pocket while both of you were asleep and you know that I took nothing else everyone in the courtroom burst out laughing at the exposure of Daniel and it was written about in the press but Daniel didn't seem to give a shit here had no problem walking on the Fanny in public none of the slowdown his public career he opened a law firm and was admitted to the bar in eighteen forty six he became part of the political machine at Tammany Hall he grew been used as political factions and an eighteen forty seven was elected to the New York Assembly but he had quote tendency toward its bizarre and full blooded risk small it's not a great business card club that's why I'm insane I mean caught the would be the tendency to observe a can full blooded risk leave a message of I'm Not There a kayak or maybe just added on any showed that when he invited Fanny he showed that when he invited family to visit him well the New York State Assembly was in session lol first introduced her to a group of his fellow Assemblyman during a brunch at the hotel and many brought her to the Assembly chamber and gave her toward the Whig members of the assembly were greatly offended or a prostitute and then brought in to their chamber that even though none can explain how they knew that use a process to add where I have aged look that way he dances a face it taught us to tell me she said Don't tell anyone the assembly ended up centering Daniel Sickles which is just kind of like a slap on the road yet say you're a bad boy but he was like Emma but nothing to get in here bring the device but nothing was stopping day he was elected as a delegate to the and Democratic National Convention in eighteen forty eight which just enable him to gather more strong and powerful friends including the Van Buren family in eighteen fifty one if any body building and started her own high class brothel she listed the name badge Uli as the taxpayer on the property this was Maria's husband ok Maria now the family moved in with that no one knows exactly how this came to be or what the relationship of bash E Lee was to Fannie or three even was one and their daughter tree so it was teen she is beautiful and being trained to be a wife and hostess at the Manhattan convent of the Sacred Heart sorry real quick question if you are seduced and how did people know that I know I thought that when I wrote it like I guess that everyone thinks that when you when you take another journey there's a popping sound are like what sort of nonsense with a convinced was like I do have a Scarlet letter on your tape Well I could see and that still goes on a lot of cultures oh yeah this is still a thing but from what I understand that there's just no way to actually tell in India I'm in the craziest like if if a girl is raped them the lies or play is to not tell anyone right because if you do tell someone Oh then you need to prove it and if you can't prove it then you're and for the most part they're just you just never going to prove this is the less funny part of the show yes this is this is what we like to call the serious halftime show anyone this wasn't sad enough well so now we have the right if they get to do sth in their own but then also this was this girl has not ruined Teresa is a teenager she's going to wipe school right so we're just treating women great at this point what I like which truly which would you rather I have pruned rather just be honest process well out of those too I mean what seems like you like you're rewarded for like being sort of like different and in the other area you can buy your life is to to life is this If There Be Like That was amazing Herald More Beef has the worst part of being a process to make an event that you can there's no share affection you just arrive from their shared a look at in contact with Marie and her family particularly fifteen year old Teresa K soon young trees had a crush on Daniel Noble American lawyer George Templeton Strong cease head he thought Daniel was just going to the house as a predator and was blackmailing badge Uli and Daniel was soon enough courting young Teresa in most political circles the sort of behavior be frowned upon and lead him being tossed out but the Democrats of Tammany down the Danube was often proving his worth to the group when a fellow Tammany was running for a corporation counsel which is like a city lawyer sort of thing his opponents put a ladder against the candidate in with the ballots and put in envelopes in them was all supposed to mail them out Dale got some of the Tamil games together drove several carriages into the post office took over the building ripped open all the mail bags to God and loves and burn them on the post office floor wait there for red light so then they there was no voting for right but he also stopped a letter from God right okay he was arrested but his connections the trial was postponed indefinitely okay then one month for the next president presidential election he asked to reset by Julie to marry him she was fifteen he was thirty three twirl the you know it's time for to settle down her pants at first were against it but when a lot of why I don't know I don't know doesn't make any sense that so here's the catch get out of the house already his fifties lowered them and they went along with the end the couple was married eighteen fifty three and was very apparent the wedding that recent was pregnant with Christ know a local paper that always went after Daniel made fun of the situation the two moved Uptown into the house and Dale kept screwing other women Theresa became aware and was surprised that he was doing it with the older women particularly that he had not given up Fannie oh I love this part of an impact if any was furious with me yet I just am ready around this time is Tammy Hall connections paid off when he was made the Corporation attorney for New York City which was basically a path this many of dough working for the city is in that area ok next we went to Washington to lobby and while he was there Teresa gave birth to their daughter Laura James Buchanan was offered the job of representing the US and England he was looking for someone to work as first secretary while he was there of oil than was recommended on no he took the job of is like a sequel I was a year of the baby lor was too young to make the journey sultry soon not be able to come the trade is rather like the perfect blue sky naturally he invited fans to come with him instead so entries is on the dock waiting shoes and my husband say by the bumpy roads in England James Buchanan took a liking to Daniel was very impressed with him he did note the Daniel like to spend money quote Dan spends a lot of money a great deal of money but I find in a very able lawyer and a great use of the little red flag and then it was known for spending he been in debt for years and at this point was just moving around to stay above water k the main reason to can and am in London was to convince the British that the US should be allowed to acquire Cuba by negotiating with Spain of Cuba's got Spain Megatron to get it to make it part of America Sir and these guys are trying to grease the wheels of all the other countries right day which abit but now we just invade Yemen geez man eventually we did travel between Madrid and Paris and London and the Netherlands working on the deal between the Take Fanny to the theater and show her the sights that day had an enemy in New York named James Gordon Bennett three years before some of Daniel's friends and attacked Bennett over an article he'd written about them I bet it was horse went brutally on New York's true freedom is what she saw us I mean whoa different time that first time we talk about unanticipated the look I'm not going to fight for IA now we're going to whip you with a horse whip when I hear you watch lady mono so he was not a fan of Daniel and his friend I did we did we lose you will be horse with Jeffery away the great man and that feels kind of glittered we were going to do no keys but then the good that it was just that it's the pollen which is set to go with the with the horses and funny wif u lovely wife so he was invited to meet the queen and he brought fancy with Oh boy wow that is hse slept and at the reception no no no he enjoys church introduced her to the quinoa as no Mrs. Julia Bennett what's the arts groups waits waits just just you it just fall day it is just cruel he is just the sale and webs on labs and members of the Geisha risky behavior yeah was that an ad lib or was that play I don't know but James Bennett was not yet weigh what I remember meeting the queen he wrote about in the New York Herald inequality caused quite a stir in the US but not so much in England which was fortunate because Wright is it the news tree so it was and banded Fanny was getting on a boat and going way wow three so deftly was living that sitcom Life With above my god three's Company yet to come yeah exactly Teresa Devlin heard about it but she missed the storm saying good bye to watch like my sake the badges God is like I me I'm waving uh Baby E Y feeling pushy that boat waving hi no no no I've just known to worry about it and say goodbye to my friend Toby gets laid by fanning out this was a right you hungry kid got big hug I so trees are pretty much miss the whole storm that the Bennett was causing in New York by reading about the shit about what to do with the Queen but the whole time Daniel people joked about his relationship with fans after two years his contract was over any return to the US nothing happened Cuba still has a span and then to rescind and moved to Lower Manhattan if any white wealthy man Roy who also had no problem taking her on his arm around town but he had VB which give the fan Ian and his own wife Fanny was no longer a prized clean prostitute she gonna a gold digger and tried to bang her niece eventually she died at thirty seven of a stroke autopsy showed she had TB and syphilis an extensive bleeding around the brain the Daniel had overalls debts from London to the U S Treasury that's a lot those of the law just happened are fast okay yet no way I just write is wrapped around yeah it is for a dropper yeah so Dale comes back with these bases got those receipts is like this ever they spent mingling and gave it to the U S Treasury of the day that's not how this works the way I was pretty empty so he towed tons which he just blew off ok but even give a shit because he was as I got a retrace to matter it's like when I I I had to get staples in my head in France wants because I felt made by teacher and they sent me the medical bill and I was like Well with all due respect I was like nothing but I was like Yeah I did not die as the stables are free so he said of his law business again and eventually to the suburbs down Dan was next talked into running for Congress by Tammany Hall and he didn't won in eighteen fifty six James Buchanan was elected president election so tree said Laura joined him in Washington and one of the interesting man in town at that time was district attorney Barton Key many women consider him to be the handsome this man in Washington the thirty nine his father had composed The Star Spangled Banner while he like don't forget you like that so I am a dead rodent that he did that unique beer hands saloon song The Night

business whose ass to tell one morning eating breakfast when he was handed a note for from Brooklyn Navy Yard engineer Murphy the day I can find a first year wrestler I hope so Murphy accused and Daniel of attacking his character and Dan you wrote an angry note back saying Murphy's letter was quote apparently intended to deter me from duty as a representative a few days later Dan was sleeping when someone started pounding on his door he opened it and there is Murphy Holy cow hide whip back now to Coweta sir and he burst and Daniel fought back and soon was throwing Murphy in a corner and at some point he asked Murphy if you satisfied yet and Murphy nodded yes and let him go they kept the whip but Dan did have a black eye soon we'll keep it secret and he wrote a letter to the secretary of Navy and had Murphy fired Murphy responded by writing a letter to the evening posts quote graduating from the worst
