humble little log cabin in which
Abraham Lincoln was bcjrn and the
farm of 110 acres about which he
played during the early years of his
boyhood, loday became the property
of the American people as the gift of

After suffering the vicissitudes of
neglect and decay of nearly 100 years,
the cabin, once in the possession of
a traveling showman, is back on its
original site, sheltered within the

Young Castleman; then a lieutenant
in the confederate army (his title of
general dates from Spanish war days)

closing months of 1864, while on a
secret mission in connection with a
proposed attempt' to liberate south

in that vicinity.- He was taken in
civilian clothing, using an assumed
name, and his friends feared he would
be condemned to death as a spy.
They appealed to President Lincoln
and he being put into possession of
all tne tacts in the case, gave to Judge
S. M; Breckenridge of St . Louis,
through whom the appeal was made,
a letter forbidding the execution of
Castleman, in the event he was sen

Prof. Dines is at Dartmouth col

Northwestern university. , '
The missive is as follows:
"Chicago, April 19, 1915. To My
Dear: Needless to say I was surprised
and yet glad to see the letter 'in the
familiar handwriting, as I had thought
after the way I had acted you would
care to have nothing to do with me. I
knew that I owe you an explanation
and if such a thing could help in the
matter which touches us both , so
deeply, an apology, but I acted as I
thought right under the circum
stances. "I will begin by saying.' yX, in it all.
I acted more with the thought of
what was best for you than of any
thing else. I had kept you waiting for
five long years, years which seemed
longer to me than to you, I am sure,
and yet happy years in the anticipa
tion of the outcome. Imagine, then,
the sad blasting of my hopes when I
found that with it all this outcome
was seemingly as far in the distance
as ever, ,
-' "I , found, to speak quite plainly,
that the salary which I should re
ceive as teacher for some years was
barely enough to keep : myself on,
witnout prospects ot saving anything.
How foolish, then, for me .to attempt
anything further than this. And what
was the fair thing for me to do to
you? If I told you of it I 'was sure
you1 would laugh at me and, in the
generosity of your nature, tell mc
that this made no difference, whereas
I knew that it would wreck our hap
piness ior an time. r,.,
"And so I thought the best thing to
do was just to break off everything,
as you. know I had thought of doing
before. I thought it would be hard
for us both, but better: much better
than the other way. And I have been
living here with' the thought of real
happiness placed far in the distant
future, if at all. I hope you will for
give me and try to see my side of it
a little in thinking of you.
"As to any favors you may ask of
me, I think you know that anything
I can do that you want me to do I
shall be glad to do: I am sorry that I
cannot come out to Omaha as you
suggest, and I cannot see that much
good could comeN of it except a re
newal of the heartaches that I felt
when I treated you as I did. ' '
Thank you for writing me as you
did. Please, Dickie, try to think as
well of me as you can, and believe
me ever. ' ,
