A Good Home.

Augusta, GA: Onward Bates, 1928. Paperback. 8vo. Stiff brown decorative wrappers. 30pp. Illustrations, facsimiles. Near fine. Probable sole edition of this Christmas keepsake produced by the first grandchild of Lincoln's attorney general Edward Bates for distribution "to each of the clan as a message of love from my wife and myself" and "to collateral members and to friends of the family...." Reprints the text of Edward Bates' December 3, 1861 remarks on the death of Judge McLean and reproduces four of his Civil War-date letters to grandson Onward. Rather uncommon. Item #26312

Price: $25.00
