It is evidently a response to Reynolds's inquiry about reminiscences of the "Greatest man the world has ever known": Abraham Lincoln. Heile recounts a childhood meeting with Lincoln shortly after the election of 1860, her memories of his assassination and of his body lying in state in Chicago, and of going to school with Lincoln's son Tad after his father's assassination.
