[Letters from Lincoln's Secretaries] John G. Nicolay Autograph Letter Signed, 5" x 8", Washington, 1891, sending his autograph to Thomas Lyons, signature large and bold; John Hay typed letter signed while secretary of state, on official letterhead, 8vo, Washington, 1904, thanking Rev. H.K. Murray of Aberdeen, Md. for "generous words of appreciation of the work of this Department" (mounted); William O. Stoddard autograph letter signed, two pages, 5.5" x 7", on personal letterhead, Madison, N.J., 1924, to H.R. Zimmerman of the "N[ational] C[ash] R[egister] News", Dayton, Ohio, stating that his "personal association with that great workman, Abraham Lincoln . . . began away back in Illinois and continued . . . while he was . . . preserving the Republic from destruction. What I can best remember of him now is the inner Lincoln, the great inside life that is now so generally recognized. Seeing him from day to day in his continuous toil and trial, I can say that he invariably arose to meet the requirements of each successive occasion or demand." Some light staining and mild foxing; fine.

    : Nicolay from Kundhardt, lot 11.
