“Little Tad. Ballad. Words and music by J.W. Turner
‘Tad’ the pet name of President Lincoln’s youngest son___ He was a great favorite with his father, as may be inferred from the fact Mrs. Lincoln while at the bedside of her dying husband, exclaimed, ‘O! bring our “Tad” here! for he loves “Tad” so well that I know he will speak to him!’”
Age toning at edges, some foxing and offsetting.
