When six months later, the engagement of Miss. Hildegarde Moncief to Mr. Benjamin button was made known
( I say "made known" for General Moncrief declared he would rather fall upon his sword than announce it)
The excitement in Baltimore society reached a feverish pitch. The almost forgotten story of Benjamin's birth was remembered and sent out upon the winds of scandal in picaresque and incredible forms.
It was said that Benjamin was really the father of Roger Button, that he was his brother who had been in prison for forty years, that he was JohnWilkes Booth in disguise -- and , finally, that he had two small conical horns sprouting from his head.
The Sunday supplements of the New York papers played up the case with fascinating sketches which showed the head of Benjamin Button attached to a fish, to a snake, and finally, to a body of solid brass.
He became known. journalistically, as the Mystery Man of Maryland. But the true story, as is usually the case, had very small circulation.
