This pamphlet contains a compilation of correspondence between the author, General Charles H.T. Collis and Colonel Robert G. Ingersoll. General Collis states in the introduction that he feels the correspondence provides evidence to back up his estimation of Abraham Lincoln's religious views. The letters span from February 12-24, 1893. The two men pose questions to each other and share quotes and situational anecdotes that make their respective arguments. The appendix provides a letter from D. E. Sickles, dated, September 29, 1900 that accompanies a copy of an interview Mr. Sickles conducted with President Lincoln the Sunday after the Battle of Gettysburg. The appendix also contains a letter written by Oliver S. Munsell in which the letter describes a personal anecdote in relation to Munsell's views on Lincoln's religious views.
