Lynn Sumner Company, New York City. In full: "I have received through your courtesy a copy of 'Lincoln and His Books', which I have found very interesting and entertaining. The analysis of the books Lincoln read in his early life and the affect those books has on his later life presents a very fascinating viewpoint.
