"From the facts and circumstances detailed to us on the 15th inst., I am decidedly of the opinion that Mrs. Lincoln is insane. The character of her insanity is such that she may, at times, appear perfectly sane in ordanaryy conversation; and yet she is constantly subject to such mental hallucinations as to render her entirely insafe if left to herself."
