  An Englishman: Good Evening: Benjamin Raphael, one of the forgotten Americans from the 19th Century, seems to have been quite a dangerous foe. Pity we know so little about some of these US masters.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Nice find, <zanzibar>, and nice research by <batgirl>. Amusing but true; in the 1840s, becoming one of the strongest players in Kentucky made Raphael one of the strongest players in the American West (!).

  perfidious: <An Englishman....Amusing but true; in the 1840s, becoming one of the strongest players in Kentucky made Raphael one of the strongest players in the American West (!).>

As late as the 1950s, when one made the western swing in major league baseball, it consisted of travelling to St Louis and Chicago, and in the American League, Detroit and Cleveland as well.

Been to all those cities named above at one time or another, and today they do not seem so far away as all that.
