Washington, DC.

Lincoln attends evening concert in Capitol grounds. In crowd he sees two ladies of the town, "our two girls . . . whose peculiarities were the wearing of black fur bonnets, and never being seen in close company with other ladies. . . . One of them was attended by their brother, and the other had a member of Congress in tow. He went home with her; and if I were to guess, I would say, he went away a somewhat altered man—most likely in his pockets, and in some other particular. The fellow looked conscious of guilt."Abraham Lincoln to Mary Todd Lincoln, 2 July 1848, CW, 1:495-96.
