    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: "Take the Oath" Autographed Note Signed. 3 1/8" x 1 1/8" document, excised from another letter and recycled, inscribed, in another hand, "Let the prisoner be released on taking the oath of Dec. 8, 1863. [Signed: A. Lincoln] April 12, 1865". These "Take the Oath" documents were likely produced en-masse and routinely signed by the President. Light show-through of text line on verso; else, a fine example. Signed by the President just two days prior to his assassination. Accompanied by Signature House Certificate of Authenticity.
