"He has a crack across his brain"

I confess however that I cannot be inspired with confidence in any movement that [Horace] Greeley controls. With all his ability he has a crack across his brain that amounts to little short of derangement & will destroy anything which he may be allowed to lead.

Hamilton Fish to Thurlow Weed, March 22, 1856, quoted in William E. Gienapp, The Origins of the Republican Party, at 151.
