Dreaming about Tad

I came across this telegram a few years back and got a kick out of it.

On this date, 144 years ago, President Lincoln sent his wife a telegram, which can be found in the Collected Works 6:256

To Mary Lincoln [1]

Mrs. LINCOLN Executive Mansion,
Philadelphia, Pa. Washington, June 9. 1863.

Think you better put ``Tad's'' pistol away. I had an ugly dream about him. A. LINCOLN


[1] ATS, IHi. There is no reply to this telegram.
