One page typed letter signed, typed on the verso of stationary for The First Congregational Church of Oak Park, IL where Barton was the pastor. Barton was an expert on Abraham Lincoln and wrote several books on him. In this letter he thanks the recipient (Mr. Sawyer) for a gift of books from the Lowell Historical Society. He addresses a local tradition that Lincoln stayed with Rev. S.W. Hanks when he visited Lowell rather than Linus Child. He debunks the theory and says, "A great deal of misinformation has been published on the subject." The letter is signed boldly in ink on the bottom of the letter. Two vertical folds. Very light browning. Size: 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
