RE: Just Trivia
I think Lincoln was not simply being economical or 'smart'. I have no real idea of the cost of things in the US in the 1860's ... but I'd say Lincoln would have known that Willie would be able to get quite an amount of candy for five cents. For a quarter, I'm guessing that he'd be able to get quite an armload. And Lincoln, the shopkeeper, knew that of course.

Not only a great President but a great parent. Indulgent when he wanted to be, but aware of when his son was 'trying it on'.

Is king o' men for a' that” Robert Burns
