Dear James:

Have received your letter of January 30, 1993 with the several photos of your two portraits of President Lincoln.

I am greatly impressed with the serious and dedicated effort to present President Lincoln in two periods of his life. Your portraits do illustrate changes both subtle and obvious. The change in where he parted his hair is one of the most obvious.

I’ve carefully analyzed the photos you have forwarded. I have no suggestions to change your impressive work. Congratulations. I wouldn’t change anything.

Best Regards,

Gerald R. Ford

President Gerald R. Ford
