Reminiscences Of Abraham Lincoln And Notes Of A Visit To California by Joshua Fry Speed
Given the intimacy of the friendship between Abraham Lincoln and Joshua Fry Speed, it's remarkable that there is not more biographical information about Speed. There have been a few sketches and at least one book on the relationship of the Speed brothers to Lincoln.
In this long-forgotten, slim volume, Joshua Speed himself offers a lecture on his memories of his dear friend, Lincoln. Also included is a short biographical sketch of Speed and a lecture he delivered regarding a trip to California.
