The unseen Vice President is never named, but places the date of this adventure to be sometime between March 1869 and November 1875. In President Grant's first term (1869-1873), this second-highest office was held by Schuyler "the Smiler" Colfax, who was not renominated due to his questionable business associations. His place was taken by Henry Wilson, who served until his death from a stroke on November 22, 1875. The United States had no Vice President for the final 15 months and a few weeks of Grant's term, which ended March 4, 1877. See more
The Secretary of State is constantly being mentioned as the immediate successor to the United States Presidency after the President and Vice-President. This is incorrect and has always been. In the 1870s, succession was determined by the Presidential Succession Act of 1792, in which the Senate president pro tempore was next in line after the vice president to succeed to the presidency, followed by the Speaker of the House. (The order succession would change in 1887 and 1947.) See more

Artie you couldn't be quiet, not even at your own funeral, could you?
Well, somebody had to tell the truth.
