Abraham Lincoln Biographer Ida Tarbell Salutes Markens’ “Abraham Lincoln and the Jews”
Here one groundbreaking Lincoln biographer writes to another: Tarbell, who famously discovered new Lincoln documentary evidence, salutes Markens, whose seminal study of Lincoln and the Jews pioneered the genre in Lincoln literature. She finds “Abraham Lincoln and the Jews” interesting, and many of Markens’ facts are new to her. She will add the work to her collection, she says, with real pleasure.
Autograph Letter Signed, 2 pages, quarto, 132 Nineteenth Street, March 24, 1913. To Isaac Markens.
