Lot 30: Envelope with a handwritten docketing notation by Lincoln penned along the right edge, 9.5 x 4.25, incorporating his first name, "Abraham Ellis, Kansas." A collector's notation below indicates that it was acquired from Goodspeed's Book Shop in 1950. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, mounting remnants along the right edge, and scattered light toning and soiling. Although not a true Lincoln signature, this is an uncommon example of his handwriting as he typically signed using just his first initial.
