101. William G. Greene to William H. Herndon.

Tallula Ills Nov 27th 1865

Dear Sir

Yours of 22nd inst at hand Contents noted &c

(1st) Mr Lincoln read Shakespear Byron & Burns all extensively while he lived at Salem I should say that Burns was his favourite

(2) I have no idea that Mr Lincoln ever participated by eating or otherwise in the Pig Story I suppose that Armstrong [1] & others cooked or roasted a Pig and may have eaten it by way of winding up a Drunken frolick but Mr Lincoln had to much Natal refinement to not have been disgusted with it
