#7 - Abraham Lincoln Estimate: $10,000+

A message of appreciation from President Lincoln

Civil War-dated LS (in the hand of John Hay), signed by Lincoln as president, “A. Lincoln,” one page, 4.5 x 7.5, Executive Mansion letterhead, November 23, 1864. Letter to Mrs. Wright Parke, in full: "I report to learn, by a note from Mr. Cutler that you have never received my acknowledgment of your kindness in sending me, a great while ago, a very pretty and ingenious Card Basket. I beg that you will pardon the seeming neglect and accept the assurance of my grateful appreciation of your courtesy." Handsomely matted and framed to an overall size of 8.75 x 12. In fine condition. The timeframe of this letter dates to a significant period of the Civil War, and a most occupied time for the sitting president—a week earlier, Major General William Tecumseh Sherman commenced his famed March to the Sea, a bold strategic maneuver and a decisive turning point in the Civil War.
