Television commercial ‘re-enactment’ of the age-old dangerous question from a woman to her man: ‘Do I look fat?’ (Actually, ‘Does this dress make my backside look big?’) applied presumably to Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln.
In 1840, Abraham Lincoln became engaged to Mary Todd, from a wealthy slaveholding family based in Lexington, Kentucky. They met in Springfield in December 1839, and were engaged sometime around that Christmas. A wedding was set for January 1, 1841, but the couple split as the wedding approached. They later met at a party, and then married on November 4, 1842, in the Springfield mansion of Mary’s married sister. In 1844, the couple bought a house on Eighth and Jackson in Springfield, near Lincoln’s law office.
The Lincolns soon had a budding family, with the birth of son Robert Todd Lincoln in Springfield, Illinois on August 1, 1843, and second son Edward Baker Lincoln on March 10, 1846, also in Springfield. According to a house girl, Abraham “was remarkably fond of children.” The Lincolns did not believe in strict rules and tight boundaries when it came to their children.CLEAR SKIES?  Weather Data for Sunday, August 8th, 2010
