267. Mentor Graham (William H. Herndon Interview).

Oct. 10, 1866 [1]

Mentor Graham

Says that no foul or ill play was shown to Lincoln in his wrestle with Jack Armstrong — That it was an ordeal through which all Comers had to pass. Injustice has been done to the Clarry's Grove: that was settled up by a moral & intelligent set of people from East & South: they were gentlemen & ladies in Clary's Grove. The frolickers lived in little grove — about 1 ½ or 2 north of Clary's grove — ie — that is the Settlements were about that far apart
