Frank and Virginia Williams
This handwritten letter, dated September 5, 1874, is from John G. Nicolay in Greenland, New Hampshire to Major Benjamin Perley Poore in Newburyport , Massachusetts . The letter reminds Poore of his offer to speak to the literary executor of the late Senator in order for Nicolay to examine some papers for his Lincoln History. The letter goes on to offer Nicolay's schedule and when he hopes to be able to research. This note was found tipped into volume one of Abraham Lincoln : A History by John G. Nicolay and John Hay.
