Tunstall (Virginia, United States) (search for this): chapter 32
XXXI. The day after the review of Burnside's division, some photographers from Brady's Gallery came up to the White House to make some stereoscopic studies for me of the President's office. They requested a dark closet, in which to develop the pictures; and without a thought that I was infringing upon anybody's rights, I took them to an unoccupied room of which little Tad had taken possession a few days before, and with the aid of a couple of the servants, had fitted up as a miniature theatre, with stage, curtains, orchestra, stalls, parquette, and all. Knowing that the use required would interfere with none of his arrangements, I led the way to this apartment. Everything went on well, and one or two pictures had been taken, when suddenly there was an uproar. The operator came back to the office, and said that Tad had taken great offence at the occupation of his room without his consent, and had locked the door, refusing all admission. The chemicals had been taken inside,
Fortress Monroe (Virginia, United States) (search for this): chapter 32
versally called, almost always accompanied his father upon the various excursions down the Potomac, which he was in the habit of making. Once, on the way to Fortress Monroe, he became very troublesome. The President was much engaged in conversation with the party who accompanied him, and he at length said, Tad, if you will be a good boy, and not disturb me any more till we get to Fortress Monroe, I will give you a dollar. The hope of reward was effectual for a while in securing silence, but, boy-like, Tad soon forgot his promise, and was as noisy as ever. Upon reaching their destination, however, he said very promptly, Father, I want my dollar. Mr. Lining from his pocket-book a dollar note, he said: Well, my son, at any rate, I will keep my part of the bargain. While paying a visit to Commodore Porter at Fortress Monroe, on one occasion, an incident occurred, related by Lieutenant Braine, one of the officers on board the flag-ship, to my friend the Rev. Mr. Ewer, of New York.
Springfield, Mo. (Missouri, United States) (search for this): chapter 32
f private life in a country town to the dignities and duties of the Presidency, feel it incumbent upon him to assume something of the manner and tone befitting that position. Mr. Lincoln never seemed to be aware that his place or his business were essentially different from those in which he had always been engaged. He brought to every question — the loftiest and most imposing — the same patient inquiry into details, the same eager longing to know and to do exactly what was just and right, and the same working-day, plodding, laborious devotion, which characterized his management of a client's case at his law office in Springfield. He had duties to perform in both places — in the one case to his country, as to his client in the other. But all duties were alike to him. All called equally upon him for the best service of his mind and heart, and all were alike performed with a conscientious, single-hearted devotion that knew no distinction, but was absolute and perfect in every

blossoms, the President said, with the manner of one asking a special favor: Commodore, Tad is very fond of flowers;--won't you let a couple of your men take a boat and go with him for an hour or two along shore, and gather a few?--it will be a great gratification to him. There is a lesson in such simple incidents,abounding as they did in the life of the late President,--which should not be lost upon the young men of this country. The Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States,with almost unlimited power in his hands,--the meekness and simplicity with which Mr. Lincoln bore the honors of that high position, is a spectacle for all time. How paltry do conceit and vain glory appear in the majesty of such an example. Nothing was more marked in Mr. Lincoln's personal demeanor, writes one who knew him well, Hon. Henry J. Raymond. than his utter unconsciousness of his position. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to find another man who would not, upon

W. D. Kelly (search for this): chapter 32
There, said he, go ahead, it is all right now. He then went back to his office, followed by myself, and resumed his seat. Tad, said he, half apologetically, is a peculiar child. He was violently excited when I went to him. I said, Tad, do you know you are making your father a great deal of trouble? He burst into tears, instantly giving me up the key. This brief glimpse of the home life of the President, though trifling in itself, is the gauge of his entire domestic character. The Hon. W. D. Kelly, of Philadelphia, in an address delivered in that city soon after the assassination, said: His intercourse with his family was beautiful as that with his friends. I think that father never loved his children more fondly than he. The President never seemed grander in my sight than when, stealing upon him in the evening, I would find him with a book open before him, as he is represented in the popular photograph, with little Tad beside him. There were of course a great many curious bo
