Mary Todd Lincoln

Excerpt from Mary Todd Lincoln: Mary Todd Lincoln Mary Todd's cousin, Elizabeth Humphreys, a member of the Todd house hold, has left vivid reminiscences of Dr. Ward and Mary's. Early school days: His requirements and rules were very strict and woe to her who did not conform to the letter. Mary accepted the conditions cheerfully, even eagerly, -and' 'never came under his censure. Mr. Ward required his pupils to recite some of their lessons before breakfast. On bright summer mornings this was no hardship, and Mary skipped blithely to her recitations, but she never murmured when conditions were not so pleasant. When she had to get up out of her warm bed and dress by. Candlelight, she smiled and trudged sturdily through snow and sleet. Mary was far in advance over girls of her age in education. She had a retentive memory and 'a mind that enabled her to grasp and thoroughly understand the lessons she was required to learn. It was a hard task but long before I 'was through mine she had finished hers and was plying her knitting needles. We were required to knit ten rounds of socks every evening.
