    Hughes is a nifty case — he resigned and hoped to be able to the person who made appointments! As to time, Holmes resigned in January; Strong in December. Lamar died January 2, 1916. That’s pretty early. Even today, I think you appoint a replacement. In November 1916? That’s different. Rub is if it is Summer or something. The Fortas nomination is telling here.
