Several Lincoln documents are the latest additions to the collection of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.
A donor who wishes to remain anonymous gave the three pieces to the museum for preservation. They include a letter from Lincoln written in 1851 as part of his successful representation of a client who was suing for libel. The others are White House documents… a letter in which Lincoln apologized for not being able to review a military unit, and another providing instructions to the Secretary of State about a treaty with Belgium.
The donation also includes two items signed by William Henry Harrison before he became President.
