This (apparent) Lincoln quote is included in one of the articles in the latest edition of the Lincoln Herald.

I am not familiar with a legitimate source for this quote. Does anyone know of one?

I came across the quote:

"Denny, he'd say, the things I want to know is in books. My best friend's the man who' ll git me one." [1]

[1] Atkinson, Eleanor. The Boyhood of Lincoln. United States, Doubleday, Page 23, 1910. http://t.ly/JkSF

This is likely from a first hand account by Dennis Hanks, a cousin of Lincoln's mother, told to the author Eleanor Atkinson (https://core.ac.uk/download/pdf/217169525.pdf) page 12.
