Don't swap horses midstream!!!!!1

Our First Lady

By Eustis Smith on October 17th, 1864

Fair Mary Todd Lincoln had this to say about last night’s Lincoln-McClellan debate:

Wasn’t Abraham the exemplar of horse sense in last night’s debate?

Seven hours is simply not enough time to contain all of that man’s wisdom!

When I met him he could scarcely say boo to a goose, but I just knew he would one day be president.

If I had not thought so, I never would have married him, for you can see he is not pretty.

But let’s keep that between you and me.

😉

If you are as proud of him as I, why not spare him 15 cents — less than the cost of a green turtle soup!

Oh, how I love him so dearly.

You might even say I’m crazy about him.

Mary Todd

 

Time runs swiftly. Part ways with 15 cents.
