Notes
-  Provenance: The letter addressed by Mr. Lincoln to Thurlow Weed on March 15, 1865, unusual in itself, has an especial meaning for me as in was written the day on which I came into the world. This has prompted me to have a fitting reproduction of it made for distribution among personal friends and Lincoln students. Please accept one of these reproductions with my compliments and best wishes. Rufus Rockwell Wilson.
-  Two selections from Lincoln's writings, presenting by Mr. Wilson on the occasion of his birthday, with explanation card attached.
-  Done in red and black ink.
