Abraham Lincoln considered Horace Maynard for appointment to his first cabinet. Lincoln wanted a Southerner.

This is the first of a two page letter that Horace Maynard sent to his grandson on his 12th birthday. What beautiful words instilling the virtue of character to carry a boy into manhood.

This is page 2 of a letter that Horace Maynard wrote to his grandson on his 12th birthday. This is the character that once permeated through even the lower economic classes. The letter says it all.
