The Friendship Between Him ani
i " Lincoln and GranJ "".
In Mrs. Pickett's introductory chap
ter to "The Heart of a Soldier. As Re
vealed In the Intimate Letters of Gen
eral' George B. rickett, C. S. A," there
Is an extremely- interesting story. It
appears that while at Richmond, Just
after the surrender, she was summon
ed to the door by a sharp rap. She
gives a charming accouut of what fol
lowed: . ' - -
With my baby on my arm I answer
ed the knock, opened the. door and
looked np at a tall, gaunt, sad faced
man In ill fitting clothes,-who, with
the accent of the north, asked: . .,..,
"Is this George "Pickett's place?
"Yes, sir," I answered, Jljut he la
"V know : that, - ma'am,' he replied,
"but-1 Just wanted to Bee the place.
I am 'Abraham Lincoln." -it. -j,
"The president r I gasped. v"'4 ,
The stranger . shook his head j ana
said: -"No, ma'am; no, ma'am. Just
Abraham-Lincoln; George's old friend." :
"I am George Pickett's wife, and thU
Is his baby," was all I-could Bay. "
My'baby pushed awayfronvme and
reached his hands to Mr. Lincoln, -who
tookjhlm In his arms, f As, he v did so
aniexpression of rapt, almost divine
tenderness and love lighted up1 the. sad
face. ; Itwas a' look that I havemever
seen , on v any n other 11 face. :. My f baby j
opened bis mouth wide - and Insisted
upon giving his father's friend a dewy,1
Infantile kiss,, As Mr. ; Lincoln gave
the little one back i to me, shaking his
finger at him playfully, he Bald:
"Tell, your father,; the -rascal, that I.
forgive him for the sake of that kiss
and those bright eyes.'' 1
Mrs. Pickett explains - the . Interest
