Reminiscences Of Abraham Lincoln

Author: Joshua Fry Speed
Release Date: 2016-01-19
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Given the intimacy of the friendship between Abraham Lincoln and Joshua Fry Speed, it's remarkable that there is not more biographical information about Speed. There have been a few sketches and at least one book on the relationship of the Speed brothers to Lincoln. In this long-forgotten, slim volume, Joshua Speed himself offers a lecture on his memories of his dear friend, Lincoln. Also included is a short biographical sketch of Speed and a lecture he delivered regarding a trip to California. Speed died in 1882. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
