In recalling the wife of Abrahum Lincoln
It Is II0cult to determine whether she Ehalled
to any great extent the life or the war president -
dent or not. A biographer of the latter says
"thero Is no doubt that much of Lincoln's '
success was , In 1 measure , attributable to
Mrs. Llncoln' acuteness and the stimulus
or her Influence : " and again ho remarks that
"If ' his wife hlHl been otherwise he might
never have been pre ldent. " Dut the later
ussertoJ Isn't as charitable ns It bounds ,
for I argued that domestic infelicity threw
Lincoln into the turmoil or political life.
I asked Frank D. Carpenter , the artist ,
I what he remembered or Mrs. Lincoln. Mr. I
Carpnter , lived , ut the whIte house for sev-
oral months and was Irtmately acquainted
with the president's domestic life.
" ! r & . Lincoln " he said , "was a much
cleverer , woman than the public gave her
credit ror There Is no denying a quality and
quantity or high spiritedness In her temperament -
ament that , made itself felt.
"Mrs. Lincoln was a Miss Todd , you know
or Kentucy. ] Her grent-grandfather , Gen-
oral Andrew Porter , was major general of the
Pennsylvania militia. General Levi Todd ,
another milicestor was one or the first set-
tiers tn Kentucky and luceesSor to DanIel
Doone. her father was a bank president
and served with distinction In both branches
of the Kentucky ] legislature.
"She was n very brlnnt : woman and an
excellent Igulst , uFlng French as easily as
her native tongue In Springfeld , Iii. , where
she moved when 1 girl , Miss Todd was undoubtedly -
doubtedly time belie of the town. Her very
pretty face lighted up so attractively , her
tongue Iwas ' so ready , and she carrIed herself
wIth such buoyant independence that her
presence at any social function assurEd time
beaux 1 charming fme. As 1 dancer she
was distInguished among the girls of her
set , and , In tact , possessed such u number or
social graces and was so superIor to Lin-
coin In culture that her love for him created
great surprise at the time . 'Never mind , '
she used to MY In the first days cf theIr marrIed ,

power of analysis. I may have been these
gifts that cnablehetl to look behind the physIcal -
Ical clumsiness or her fiance amI thus uppre-

"A cruel injustice done lrs. Lincoln , " con-
tnuell Mr. Carpenter , "was on account , of her
southcr birth ' , I being frequently urge that
she aided and abeted time confederate troops
and was ut heart 1 strong seees lonist. This
complaint was without 1 shalow of founda-
