300. William G. Greene to William H. Herndon.

Home Nov 21st 1866

Friend Herndon

Yours of the 19 Recd I have carefully read your Lecture on Mr Lincoln

You describe the state of his mind by the shock of Miss Rutedgs death to letter

I think you rather over draw the Picturesk of N— Salem still every surrounding is there that you mention

Your description of the People of that day is a master success not even our lamented oald friend E. D. Baker could have surpassed it I have no doubt your Lecture was well recd. I thank you for the Copy sent me

W. G. Greene
