This pamphlet contains two essays, both concerning Abraham Lincoln and his personal views on religion. The essay by Fitzgerrell focuses on building an argument that Lincoln was a spiritualist by recounting several personal events and spiritual and religious events that happened to him [the author]. There is also a report by Colonel S.P. Kase about a seance with Miss Nettie Colburn, medium, at the home of Mr. Laurie in Georgetown. The essay by Austin discusses Lincoln's religious views from several accounts, ranging from bibliographer's accounts to statements by those who knew him. There is an image of Fitzgerrell at the beginning.
