Annotation

[1]   ADS, DLC. Framed with a portrait of Lincoln, this card is accompanied by another card on which Ashmun wrote: ``The above is the last autograph of President Lincoln. It was written & given to me at half past 8 P.M. April 14, 1865, just as he & Mrs Lincoln were starting for the Theatre where he was assasinated.''
