him a letter asking him for old times sake
To discharge my sick boy from the army;
But maybe he couldnt read it.
Then I went to town and had James Garber,
Who wrote beautifully, write him a letter;
But maybe that was lost in the mails.
So I traveled all the way to Washington.
I was more than an hour finding the White House.
And when I found it they turned me away,
Hiding their smiles. Then I thought:
Oh, well, he aint the same as when I boarded him
And he and my husband worked together
And all of us called him Abe, there in Menard.
As a last attempt I turned to a guard and said:
Please say its old Aunt Hannah Armstrong
From Illinois, come to see him about her sick boy
In the army.
Well, just in a moment they let me in!
And when he saw me he broke in a laugh,
And dropped his business as president,
And wrote in his own hand Dougs discharge,
Talking the while of the early days,
And telling stories.
