Mr. Lincoln's Whiskers - Karen B. Winnick Based on a true story. Young Grace believes Lincoln to be a kind man who would make a great president. While gazing at his picture by the light of the moon she is inspired to write him. She encourages him to grow a beard, "All the ladies like whiskers and they would tease their husbands to vote for you." The whole town is excited when she receives a response. She receives a bonus surprise when Lincoln stops by town on his way to the Inauguration.

Includes reproductions of original letters.
