Lincoln Asked For Some of
Grant's Whiskey.


When officious intermeddlers went to President Lincoln and demanded Gen. Grantís removal from the command of the armies, charging that he was in the habit of getting drunk, Lincoln coolly asked them where he could get some of the brand of whisky that Grant was using; he wanted to supply it to his other generals. This remark of his silenced his callers, and he heard no more complaints about Grant getting drunk.
