Henry H. Markham was a United States Representative from 1885 to 1887, and Governor of California from 1891 to 1895.

Short jabs, slower elongated thrusts, a snap of the wrist. Curt notes created by “damping” lightly against one’s chest or lingering notes by thrusting up and away in a long graceful circle.
