Abraham Lincoln Autograph Letter Signed to his Fiancée Mary Owens
The Only Abraham Lincoln Letter to his Fiancée Mary Owens Still in Private HandsLong on Politics, Short on Love. Write back as soon as you get this, and if possible say something that will please me, for really I have not been pleased since I left you. Here, Lincoln perfectly demonstrates what Owens later described as deficiencies in those little links which make up the chain of a womans happiness. Rather than expressing his feelings for Owens, Lincoln complains about his health and discusses political issues swirling in the Illinois General Assembly. Although inept at love, the letter offers rare insight into the young representatives thoughts on a variety of political issues. In this highly important letter to Mary Owens, a self-absorbed Lincoln complains to his potential spouse of his health, both physical and mental, and discusses political issues to the point that he describes his own letter as dry and stupid. Perhaps more revealing than he realized, it illustrates the tension in Lincolns early life between matters of the head, with which he was comfortable, and matters of the heart, with which he clearly was not. Autograph Letter Signed, to Mary S. Owens, December 13, 1836, 2 pp. 9¾ x 7¾ in. I have been sick ever since my arrival here, or I should have written sooner. It is but little difference, however, as I have verry little even yet to write. And more, the longer I can avoid the mortification of looking in the Post Office for your letter and not finding it, the better. I dont like verry well to risk you again. Ill try you once more anyhow. The new State House is not yet finished, and consequently the legislature is doing little or nothing. The Governor delivered an inflamitory political message , and it is expected there will be some sparring between the parties about it as soon as the two Houses get to business. Taylor delivered up his petitions for the New County to one of our members this morning. There are names enough on the petitions, I think to justify the members from our county in going for it; but if the members from Morgan oppose it, which they say they will, the chance will be bad. Our chance to take the seat of Government to Springfield is better than I expected. An Internal Improvement Convention was held here since we met, which recommended a loan of several millions of dollars on the faith of the state to construct Rail Roads. Some of the legislature are for it and some against it; which has the majority I can. There is great strife and struggling for the office of U. Senator here at this time. It is probable we shall ease their pains in a few days. The opposition men have no candidate of their own, and consequently they smile as complacently at the angry snarls of the contending Van Buren candidates and their respective friends, as the Christian does at Satans rage. You recollect I mentioned in the outset of this letter that I had been unwell. I really can not endure the thought of staying here ten weeks. Give my respects to M. This is one of the ten oldest Lincoln letters known to have survived. Although 11 leaves (9 of which are in institutions) from Lincolns educational sum book, a few documents written or signed by Abraham Lincoln in 1832 relating to his service in the Black Hawk War (again, mostly in institutions), and several early legal documents for his New Salem neighbors have survived, very few of Lincolns business or personal letters exist from the 1830s. This letter to Mary Owens from December 1836 is Lincolns earliest personal letter known to have survived, as well as being his earliest letter to a woman. It is also rich in political content and is unlike most surviving early Lincoln letters in that regard. Lincoln apparently never wrote to Mary Rutledge, and no letters are known from his courtship with Mary Todd. Lincoln wrote this first letter from Vandalia, and the other two from Springfield, in May and August of 1837. This is the only known Lincoln letter to Owens in private hands. He voted in his first election on August 1 and became a clerk in Offutts store soon thereafter. Later that year, he began writing legal documents for friends in New Salem. The following Spring, he became a candidate for the Illinois General Assembly. The Black Hawk War intervened, and from April to July 1832, Lincoln served three separate enlistments in northern Illinois. Although never engaged in battle, Lincoln, to his surprise and delight, was elected captain of his company by his friends and neighbors. More than a quarter century later, he reflected that this election was a success which gave me more pleasure than any I have had since. After his company was discharged, he twice reenlisted as a private in other companies. Early in 1833, he and William F. That same year, Mary Owens came from Kentucky to visit her sister Elizabeth Abell, who lived with her husband and children near New Salem. Lincoln, a frequent visitor to the Abells, met Owens at this time. By early 1834, Lincoln was working as a deputy surveyor, and he again campaigned for election to the General Assembly. He won one of the four seats in the Illinois House of Representatives for Sangamon County, and he took office in December 1834 in the state capital at Vandalia. As a freshman representative, he largely followed the lead of fellow Whig representative from Sangamon County, John T. Stuart, who encouraged him to study law. He also developed a friendship or perhaps a romance with Ann Rutledge, the local tavern-keepers daughter. When she died of typhoid fever in August 1835, Lincoln was severely depressed. In the spring of 1836, he began the process of obtaining a license to practice law. After campaigning in the summer, he won reelection to the Illinois House of Representatives on August 1, and gained admission to the bar on September 9. He tried his first case in October. He began his second term in the legislature on December 5, 1836, just a week before writing Mary Owens, who was again visiting her sister near New Salem. Among the new legislators in this session was Stephen A. Douglass, who later dropped the second s from his name, would be Lincolns rival for the next twenty-five years. While Lincoln served four terms in the Illinois House of Representatives and one term in the U. House of Representatives, Douglas(s) served one term in the Illinois House of Representatives, as Illinois Secretary of State, as Associate Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court, two terms in the U. House of Representatives, and three terms in the U. In 1856, Lincoln looked back on his and his rivals careers and reflected sourly, Twenty-two years ago Judge Douglas and I first became acquainted. We were both young then; he a trifle younger than I. Even then, we were both ambitious; I, perhaps, quite as much so as he. With me , the race of ambition has been a failurea flat failure; with him it has been one of splendid success. Lincoln went on to lose to Douglas in the Senatorial campaign of 1858, where Republican candidates won the majority of votes, but the state legislature, still controlled by the Democrats, selected Douglas over Lincoln. Two years later, aided by the national attention brought to him by his debates with Douglas and by a divided Democratic party, Lincoln triumphed over Douglas for the Presidency in 1860. Senator, and incorporated the city of Chicago. Near the end of the session, in March 1837, Lincoln and fellow legislator Dan Stone entered their protest against slaveryand abolitionismin the Illinois House of Representatives. Lincolns letter to Rushville lawyer William A. Minshall in December 1837, is perhaps most like this letter among Lincolns early productions. Written from Springfield, Lincoln asked about the political prospects of his law partner John T. Stuart in his campaign for a seat in Congress. We have adopted it as part of our policy here, Lincoln wrote, to never speak of Douglass at all. Isnt that the best mode of treating so small a matter? Stuart went on to defeat Douglass very narrowly in August 1838 for a seat in the U. After returning from the legislature, Lincoln moved to Springfield and became John T. Stuarts junior law partner in April. From Springfield, he wrote two more letters to Mary Owens, in May and August, the latter of which seems to have brought an end to their awkward relationship. She attended boarding school at Nazareth Academy, a Catholic school that accepted Protestants. She first visited New Salem, Illinois, in 1833 to visit her sister, Elizabeth Abell. Lincoln was apparently impressed when they met. Abell agreed to invite Mary back to New Salem, but only if Lincoln would agree to marry her. It is not certain whether Lincoln agreed seriously or in jest. Despite coming to some sort of understanding concerning marriage, Lincoln was awkward and uncomfortable in the presence of women his age (both he and Mary were 24 years old), and unsure of his romantic feelings toward Mary and her intentions toward him. The relationship soon showed signs of strain. They moved to Platte County, Missouri, where he and his brother founded Pleasant Ridge College in the 1850s. Jesse Vineyard died during the Civil War, and their sons fought for the Confederacy. During the eight months between this letter and Lincolns last known letter to Mary Owens dated August 16, 1837, the relationship deteriorated. Mary, perhaps frustrated by Lincolns emotional confusion towards her, appears to have demanded a commitment on Lincolns part. In his next and last known letter to Mary, the unsure Lincoln offers an agonizing soliloquy regarding his feelings. At times appearing to speak more to himself than to Mary, he vacillates between making a commitment to marriage and breaking off the relationship entirely. Mary ultimately rejected Lincolns half-hearted offer to go ahead with their intended marriage. Eight months after this letter, Lincoln attempted to make light of the failed relationship in a letter to Eliza Caldwell Browning, one of his few women friends and the wife of his political ally and fellow attorney Orville Hickman Browning. In that April 1, 1838, letter, Lincoln tells the story of his relationship with Mary in the self-deprecating style that became a characteristic of his writing. In a cruel piece of hyperbole, Lincoln described seeing Mary again for the first time in three years: I knew she was over-size, but she now appeared a fair match for Falstaff; I knew she was called an old maid, and I felt no doubt of the truth of at least half of the appelation; but now, when I beheld her, I could not for my life avoid thinking of my mother; and this, not from withered features, for her skin was too full of fat, to permit its contracting in to wrinkles; but from her want of teeth, weather-beaten appearance in general, and from a kind of notion that ran in my head, that nothing could have commenced at the size of infancy, and reached her present bulk in less than thirtyfive or forty years; and, in short, I was not all pleased with her. He reported to Browning that he had gotten out of the relationship with no violation of word, honor or conscience. In mock legal terminology, he explained that he made the proposal to her direct, but to his shock and dismay, she rejected him. After trying again and again, and being rebuffed as many times, he found himself mortified almost beyond endurance. With deeply wounded vanity, he realized that he was really a little in love with Mary Owens. Although the girls had made fools of other men, in this case, Lincoln admitted, Imade a fool of myself.

Abraham Lincoln hand Signed Civil War Appointment
This is an authentic hand-signed military appointment signed by Abraham Lincoln and his Secretary of War Edwin Stanton confering the rank of Captain in the Veterans Reserve Corps to James H Remington. Remington was born in Warwick, RI in 1838. He attended East Greenwich Academy before going to Brown University, where he graduated as valedictorian in 1862. In September of that year he was mustered as captain of Company H, 7th Regiment, RI Infantry. His active military career only lasted until December 13, 1862 when he was wounded at the Battle of Fredericksburg in Virginia. A musket ball shattered his lower jaw and he was formally discharged by reason of disability in May 1863. He resigned his seat in June as he was eager to return to military service. He accepted a captain’s commission in the newly formed Veterans Reserve Corps (initially called the Invalid Corps). He was immediately ordered to report for duty at Knight General Hospital in New Haven, CT where he assisted with the formation of companies for the Veterans Reserve Corps. After serving with several different units in Connecticut and Virginia, he settled in as captain with Company E, 1st Regiment of the Veterans Reserve Corps. The company’s primary duty was in Elmira, NY to guard rebel prisoners at Camp Chemung from November 1864 to June 1865. Provenance: Private Sevierville, TN collection.

Abraham Lincoln Handwritten Letter Signed, A Rare Historical Find
ABRAHAM LINCOLN SIGNED AND HANDWRITTEN LETTER. ABRAHAM LINCOLN HANDWRITTEN LETTER, A HISTORICAL RARE FIND! Handwritten Letter Signed, to Hezekiah M. Springfield, Illinois, December 6, 1846. Reads in full below historical background. Fellow attorney Hezekiah Wead engaged Lincoln to help with two cases pending in Springfield, Illinois, court. As noted here, Lincoln filed a declaration in one case and provided a status update on the other. Court records no longer exist for this period in Lincoln’s career, so the exact nature of Nicholas vs. Herbert is unknown, although much of his general law practice revolved around debt and land cases. Lincoln’s use of the phrase “according to Gunter” is also curious; Roy Basler, editor of the Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, had been. Unable to locate any legal scholarship pertaining to anyone named Gunter. ” Instead, he postulated that Lincoln is reverting to a “bit of surveyor’s lingo, the equivalent of’according to Hoyle,’Edmund Gunter being the surveyor’s authority. Lincoln had been a surveyor for a few years in the 1830s. Hezekiah Wead migrated from Vermont to Illinois to pursue a legal career. Like Lincoln, he was also interested in public office. Wead was a delegate to the Illinois State Constitutional Convention in 1847. The two men remained friends despite finding themselves on opposite sides of legal cases and political parties. Although Wead was a Democrat, he congratulated Lincoln when he won the 1860 Republican Party nomination, and remained pro-Union , opposing secession and strongly supporting Lincoln’s efforts to crush the rebellion. Condition Very fine but for small tear at seal. A fragment of the wax seal remains. Letter Signed, to Hezekiah M. Integral address leaf in Lincoln’s hand. Yours by the hand of Mr. Davidson was duly received – I will have your. Declaration filed and rule taken tomorrow, according to Gunter – Your. Case of Nicholas vs. Herbert, stands on the Docket No. No particular day for trial – If the opposite party will be ready to. Try it, as soon as the court will, my opinion is you may come right. Along – My recollection is that I have never known the trial of a case. In this court, delayed beyond the first week, when both parties were ready for trial.
