Asylum papers on Mary Todd Lincoln to be Auctioned
I found reference to this article in a genealogy blog I occassionaly read. Seems that not all the papers regarding Mary Todd Lincoln being committed to an asylum were destroyed. A stash of forgotten documents will soon be seeing the light of day at auction. See the auction page here. I'm betting they go for way over the $8-10,000 estimate.
