Congratulations Son !

Yesterday our son received a check from the "Congressional Quarterly" for two articles he wrote for a book they are publishing on Abraham Lincoln. Our son, a graduate student, who is working on his PhD in History wrote an article on Abraham Lincoln and his Secretary of State, William Seward. The second article was on Lincoln and the anti slavery movement. Previously he received a check from another publication he wrote for on the Civil War and slavery. Congratulations Son, your Mom and I are proud of you! A few years ago his Mother and I, for his birthday, gave him the 6 volume set of Carl Sandburg's "Abraham Lincoln: The Prairie Years and The War Years in hardback." Best present we ever go him.
