Excerpt from Abraham Lincoln and the Bixby Letter

It is not quite clear what Dr. Bullard's object is in the section John Hay's Burden of Grief (p. 116 He points out that Hay had received word of his brother's death just before he em tertained John Morley when, ac cording to Dr. Butler, he told Morley that he wrote the Bixby letter. It would seem that such an occasion would naturally bring up the subject of a famous letter Of condolence and lead to the admission as claimed. No body claims that Hay in assum ing the authorship Of the Bixby letter knowingly was stealing what another man had com posed, as Dr. Bullard states. All those who uphold Hay's author ship believe he was honest in making the claim, that he said so because he actually had writ ten the letter. Dr. Bullard says he does not accept any such in terpretation, but where does he get the idea that others do?
