When Fuller was about seventy years old, William Hartshorne and Samuel Coates of Pennsylvania were in Alexandria and, having heard of Fuller’s powers, sent for him. They asked him two questions which satisfied their curiosity. First, when they asked him how many seconds there were in a year and a half, he answered in about two minutes, 47,304,000.
