Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln attend party at governor's mansion. "In every respect it was a delightful and magnificent entertainment, Governor and Mrs. Bissell doing the honors of host and hostess with an ease and grace which attracted and pleased all who were present. . . . Throughout the evening, a fine brass and string band discoursed most delicious music, and the dancers kept the cotillions filled until a late hour." Illinois State Journal, 16 February 1857.
