  • Notes 
    • In early June of 1873, Sarah Ellen Hardin Walworth's son-in-law, Mansfield Walworth was murdered by his son. Mansfield was married to Sarah's daughter, Ellen. Mary Todd Lincoln wrote the following letter to Sarah from the Springbank Hotel and Spa in St. Catherines, Ontario, after receiving the news of the tragedy.

      My Dear Mrs. Walworth,-

      Only those who have passed through deep affliction can fully understand others, who are similiaryly tried, thus I approach you with my warmest sympathies, entering into all your feelings, and those of your deeply afflicted daughter.

      "Whom the Good Lord Loveth, He chasteneth." Surely we who have suffered so much in this life, will receive full compensation in that blessed world, where sorrow is unknown.

      My own griefs have so greatly affected my health. My precious idols, one by one, have been torn from me and in place of their devotion, I have been left to battle with a cold and oftentimes cruel world. But my frequent and severe illnesses warn me that my time here is short, and that ere long I will be reunited to my beloved ones, who are watching and waiting for me.

      A few weeks after you kindly visited me, I was enabled to leave my bed and accompanied by my faithful middle-aged colored nurse, have found a healthful resort here. The baths are benefitting me very much, but who but the Great Physician can cure a broken heart.

      My prayers oftern ascend for your lovely daughter and the son who loves her just as my worshipping one did me. Yet in Heaven True Love burns the brighter.

      Most affecionately,

      Your friend,

      Mary Lincoln
