Once one of Dr. Dresser’s relatives, a very old woman and extremely deaf, told me how Lincoln had appeared at the rectory early one November morning in the rain and said in his homely parlance, “I want to get hitched up to Miss Todd tonight. ” THE LINCOLN HOUSE I often saw Lincoln’s house on Eighth and Jackson streets.

Now, after all these years, Tom and she were together again, with his children and her children to feed and care for. The cabin was 18 feet square and there were eight people under its shabby roof.
