  1. I went to Lincoln College . This a school in central IL. It was the only school named for Presdent Lincoln while his was still living. So missed of his charm and wit.

  2. Interesting. I would like to take a look at the document to see if I have to change my conclusion in a previous article that I wrote on Leale. Although I didn’t see the document on the new materials page? Perhaps because I am on a phone.

  3. Jo

    Has a transcript of the document been made available?
