I think it's question #4.  My answer is Letter IV from "Letters
from the Earth," October-November 1909.

Bob Hirst has apparently won the contest!

He should enjoy the book immensely, especially the wonderful editing that 
was endlessly praised in a review in this Forum.

But he got only three correct out of four. Which one did he miss? Can he 
figure it out?

Clue: the improbable namesake of a President.

And if anybody else jumps in gets his wrong answer right AND proves one of 
his other answers wrong, we'll have a tie.

Oh, the drama... will I have to chop the book in half?
