To: Miss Bixby 1864. "Dear Madam, I have been shown in the files of the War Department, a statement of the Adjutant-General of Massachusetts, that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But, I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost and a solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom." Abraham Lincoln
"No greater friend, No worst enemy." USMC
