Graphite of Abraham Lincoln. 8 X 10. We helped my son rehab an old farmhouse in Tonganoxie, Kansas.
Lincoln's cousin lived there with her family and after Lincoln gave four speeches running for the presidency in Leavenworth, Kansas; came there to spend a few days. The stone column in the yard had a bronze plaque on top which declared the property; 'Lincoln's Rest.' I naturally have a tender place in my heart for our 16th president as do most Americans.
To stand in the house and realize that he too walked and spoke in those rooms never failed to impress.
