Springfield, Ill., Sept. 28, 1860

Professor Gardner

Dear Sir:

Some specimens of your Soap have been used at our house and Mrs. L. declares it is a superb article. She at the same time, protests that I have never given sufficient attention to the “soap question” to be a competent judge.

Yours truly,
Abe Lincoln

[The text of the song is exactly the same as the original text, beginning with “Some specimens…”]
