LONG-LOST LINCOLN LETTER UP FOR SALE

Image result for long lost lincoln letter up for sale

A once lost letter written by Abraham Lincoln responding to accusations of getting
in the way of a corruption investigation, is worth more than $80,000 – and it is now
for sale. The letter was one of several that were left in an abandoned house and
lost for many years. It is dated Feb. 12, 1864 and was addressed to Secretary of
the Treasury Salmon Chase, who Lincoln believed was behind “all the mischief”
in an accusation that the nation’s 16th president was thwarting a congressional investigation of corruption.   

Nathan Raab, the principal at The Raab Collection said…“This is a remarkable
find, we have no doubt it will find an appreciative new home.”
