Abraham Lincoln wrote this letter to his wife Mary Lincoln in 1848. Mary had accompanied her husband to Washington, DC when he assumed his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in December 1847, but by April 1848, she and the children had returned to her father’s house in Lexington, Kentucky. The separation pleased neither party, so Lincoln and Mary made arrangements for Mary and the children to return to Washington. By the third week of July, she and the children were reunited with Lincoln.
