DescriptionRobert Todd Lincoln, Eldest Son of Abraham Lincoln, Autograph Letter Signed "Robert T. Lincoln", one page, 5" x 8". On his "Hildene / Manchester / Vermont" letterhead, 8 August 1912, to Dr. Webb. "I apologize for your having been put to the trouble of reminding me of my promise. I am now able to send the autograph cheque & do so with great pleasure." Although he gave the bulk of his father's papers to the nation, and destroyed some, Robert retained a cache of the president's checks which he selectively doled out to friends -- and friends of friends -- who wanted an Abraham Lincoln autograph, and this letter doubtless reflects one such gift. Fine. Also included is a 5" x 3" change-of-address card for Robert Lincoln. Fine.
Provenance: Paul C. Richards, Templeton, MA, 1987.
