In 1865, a hatter from Boston shot and killed John Wilkes Booth, the fugitive assassin of President Lincoln. This part is definitely true. But before all this, he stays at a hotel for years where he is seemingly the only guest. Meanwhile, a boulder and a tortoise get married next to a pond and all the local spiders attend.
Boston Corbett relates the mystery of this hatter and the strange stories encircling him. There are also at least two instances where one character explains to another what ice cream is.
