Cornelia Dyer Heile Letter, 1928 May 27

 File — Box 4258.001: [1005697220], Folder: 4
Scope and Contents This collection contains one letter written by Cornelia Dyer Heile to a man she calls Mr. Reynolds on May 27, 1928. 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.
