I saw the exhibition when it first opened in November, and thought it was one of he best Lincoln exhibitions I have ever seen. Now that six months have passed in the bicentennial year of Lincoln, I feel even stronger about this exhibition. Lincoln is everywhere, but I think I will remember most this wonderfully accessible gem of an exhibition that teaches us so much about Lincoln and his time, and how we can view him today through the eyes of his public. I have only now had a chance to hear David Ward's audio tour and to read his posting. I learned a great deal from the exhibition and the writings, and I hope you publish something on this. I was especially intrigued to see the image of Lincoln made after the Thomas Hicks portrait, which is part of my museum's collection (Chicago History Museum.

Kudos, bravo, and congratulations.
