Inhaltsangabe: Abraham Lincoln was the first President of the United States to wear a beard. What gave him the idea was a letter he received from an eleven-year-old girl from Westfield, New York named Grace Bedell. "Dear Sir," she wrote, " . . . if you will let your whiskers grow I will try to get (my brothers) to vote for you. You would look a great deal better for your face is so thin. All the ladies like whiskers and they would tease their husbands to vote for you . . ."
Vom Autor: "I've always been a fan of Abraham Lincoln and in some of the Lincoln books I've read there was mention of Grace and her letter--I wondered, who was Grace Bedell? I came to understand that though Lincoln was famous, he still possessed the humility to listen to the advice of a young girl. And Grace was too young to vote, but even if she were grown-up she couldn't have voted. Women didn't get to vote until 1920. So this was her way of saying that her opinion was important, too. These underlying messages made me want to write this story."
