Lincoln's First Pet - Gene C - 09-28-2023 07:22 AM

I've read this story before, but it's been so long ago that I don't remember where I first read it.

This from the Internet Archive. The Archives gives this stories source as McClure's, November 1922
I had to enlarge the print to read it.

Gene, possibly you first read the story in Emanuel Hertz' Lincoln Talks. Hertz' source is Frederick C. Iglehart's The Speaking Oak.
