Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

Annotation

[1]   AES, CSmH. Lincoln's endorsement or note has been removed from attendant papers, and as a result neither the old friend nor the young lady can be identified. It is a guess, however, that Deacon John Phillips may have been the old friend. See Lincoln to Phillips, November 21, 1864, supra.
