. 309 pages, illustrated. Paul Angle, the Lincoln historian, notes that the book makes available a considerable amount of new material. There is an extract, several pages in length, from a diary kept by the author's mother while a guest at the White House. Numerous telegrams from Mrs. Lincoln to Lincoln are printed for the first time and the concluding years of her life are, in large part, set forth by her own correspondence.
