Additional Details

"Your most kind letter of sympathy was especially gratifying, for I cannot fail to remember that my debt . . . to my Indiana friends is greater than to all others. The struggles of my early life, in which my dear wife so largely shared, were helped by their unfailing friendship. The sympathy of old friends is very comforting to me."
