Not everyone agrees, but I think Mary Lincoln was most adamant about it. In a December 16, 1867, letter to Henry C. Deming, Mary wrote, "He (Carpenter) is a second edition of Mr. L.'s crazy drinking law partner, Herndon, endeavoring to write himself into notice, leaving truth, far, far, in the distance." Still I think the book is an invaluable resource and fascinating to read.


Roger, I too am a fan of Carpenter's book. Could the rest of Mary's quote explain her dislike of Carpenter. " C. intruded frequently in Mr. L’s office when time was too precious to be idled. Of this fact, I am well aware.”10

I think she was jealous of Carpenter's access and time spent with Lincoln.
