One Final Bonus – Louis Bayard Quote 

“Joshua said nothing, for his mind was even now limning the vacancy. Lincoln would no more be seated on the far side of the dining table. He would no more ride his horse into town or let his huge hands rove through the library of stroll past the hemp house or listen to Eliza gabble or applaud Mary’s nocturnes or argue some abstruse point of law with James or scratch behind Growler’s ears as the dog lay stretched around his feet. From henceforth, there would be only space where Lincoln used to be.
And in Joshua’s mind, that space began to expand and deepen until it became a vast nullity, blanketing everything around him until it seemed the night itself had been swallowed up by it.”
― Louis Bayard, Courting Mr. Lincoln
