Lincoln Letter Returned
It is always somewhat intriguing to see which biblio-stories "hit the big time." This one certainly has, with stories this morning in the Boston Globe (via AP), New York Times, Washington Post, and on the front page of CNN.com. A Lincoln letter to his Treasury Secretary has been returned to the National Archives; it was removed from a volume of Treasury Department correspondence at least sixty years ago, and resurfaced in 2006 when it was sold to a private collector at auction.
