A Souvenir of Abraham Lincoln

Excerpt from A Souvenir of Abraham Lincoln Uring an extended and somewhat intimate acquaintance with Mr. Lincoln, I received many letters from him, on both law matters and politics, some of which were quite unguarded, and hence forthwith destroyed, and most of the remainder sharing the fate of old letters, for it did not occur to me until later years that Lincoln's letters would have any inherent value of themselves. After he became President, I designed to preserve what few I had left, an intention impossible of perfect achievement to one who could not resist the importunities of friends and so, in order to qualifiedly comply with requests, even now occasionally made, and to gratify my children and grandchildren, I now, for the first time, publish such of my letters as I have at command, as I care ever to publish and, even as I consider anything which emanated from the pen of him who wrote and made vital the Proclamation of Emancipation to be of inestimable value as a souvenir, so, likewise, do I hope these fac sz'mz'le reproductions may be also cherished as souvenirs by all to whom this little erockm'e may come.
