Yes, I am packing my requisites including purple boxers from Brooks Brothers (XL) ย for the events of next week.

The number nine refers to an estimate of IQ.

In 2006, University of California at Davis psychology professor Dean Simonton completed a comprehensive study examining the “intellectual brilliance” of 42 US presidents.ย The top 15 who appear on this list were compiled by Libb Thims โ€” an American engineer who compiles high IQ scores as a hobby โ€” using the results of Simonton’s study.

This would have been President Garfield’s 160th reunion. I will see that he is remembered.
