RE: On the Tarbell Trail
Need some help.

I'm now printing out Tarbell's Lincoln-related correspondence, which means I have to actually read it now. Big Grin

On September 28, 1895, Tarbell wrote to Osborn Oldroyd the following:

My Dear Mr. Oldroyd,
Is this the same as your Magic picture? Mr. Phillips [John S. Phillips, publisher of McClures Magazine] says you have it in your collection. This is the picture that Mr. Power [?] sold at the monument as a Magic. I shall be greatly obliged if you can let me know at once returning picture as we wish to have it copied. Address me here in N.Y. care of Mr. McClure.

Very Truly Yours
Ida M. Tarbell

At the bottom of the letter, Oldroyd wrote back:

Yes, this is the magic picture.
In haste
O.H. Oldroyd

I looked through my copy of Oldroyd's book at the list of illustrations and I didn't see anything mentioned as a "magic" picture. Can someone help me understand what is meant by this?

Best
Rob

Abraham Lincoln in the only man, dead or alive, with whom I could have spent five years without one hour of boredom.
--Ida M. Tarbell

I want the respect of intelligent men, but I will choose for myself the intelligent.
