Abraham Lincoln Association
Office of the President. 2 Williams Street. Providence, Rhode Island 02903
February 12, 1995
As one of my last official acts as President, I wanted to write to commend you on your artistry in creating your two Abraham Lincoln masterpieces.
I refer to your "Prairie lawyer" and "Immortal Conscience" President Abraham Lincoln.
Both represent superb artistry and craftsmanship. The detail, including the patina, expressions and even down to the suspenders worn by Lincoln in your "Prairie Lawyer" are an indication of your tremendous talent.
Virginia and I are delighted to have purchased a set for the Frank and Virginia Williams Collection of Lincolniana, which some day will go to a school which has no such collection.
Your good work has been much admired in our library where the sculptures now repose.
Parenthetically, I want to once again thank you for your significant financial contribution to the Abraham Lincoln Association for The Lincoln papers Project. We shall never forget your beneficence.
You have my every good wish, as always.
Frank J. Williams
