2 “I knew Mordecai and Josiah Lincoln intimately. They were excellent men, plain, moderately educated, candid in their manners and intercourse, and looked upon as honorable as any men I have ever heard of.

Mordecai was celebrated for his bravery, and had been in the early campaigns of the West.” --Henry Pirtle, letter, June 17, 1865, Ms.
