The Wives of the New President and Vice President.
--A lady writes from Washington hat Mrs. Lincoln is somewhat young-looking for the wife of a man of 52.
She is richly dressed, wearing a rose-colored silk, and is otherwise handsomely decorated.
She has a very fair complexion, dark hair, and a pleasant eye and voice.
Mrs. Hamlin is quite young — far below thirty--a lady of small figure, and like the President's wife.
