This week I have been reading Lincoln in Private: What His Most Personal Reflections Tell Us About Our Greatest President by Ronald C. White.
The author talks about a dozen of the notes or fragments that were found and ties them to events in our history. I have yet to read through them, but the book contains the text od over 100 notes that he wrote. It is thought that he wrote many more than this, but these are the ones that have survived.
If you are a regular reader of my blog you already know that Lincoln is one of my favorite Presidents. I still have a lot to learn about Lincoln as I have a stack of books in my library almost as tall as myself that are about Lincoln and many of them have yet to be read.
However, instead of reading what I have at home I read a new book from the library 🙂
Like Lincoln, I will often write notes to myself about something that I have thought about or studied. Sometimes these notes mature into something that I will share here, or they may just lie unnoticed for years till I happen to pick them up and read them again.
