One of the great things about publishing a work-in-progress article like the one on Malini is that it often prompts new discoveries. I am pleased to report that I made a mistake as to the date of Malini's U.S. naturalization. For purposes of the article, I was working from ship manifests that documented the date. Bill Mullins - who made an enormous contribution to my research for the initial article - has now tracked down Malini's original naturalization document in the government archives. It was filed, as I had written in Cook County, Illinois, but much earlier. The actual date was March 19, 1894. I find this particularly interesting because it suggests that Malini left New York fairly early in his career. In any event, for those who are interested in this sort of detail, please amend your Malini article accordingly.
I had heard that story as well, Gary. Not that I don't believe that the man told the story to Allen Okawa, I have a different source for the underlying medical reason. I'll leave it at that for now.
