Card of Admission for George Ashmun

Allow Mr. Ashmun & friend to come in at 9. A.M. to-morrow.

April 14. 1865. A. LINCOLN

Framed with a portrait of Lincoln, this card is accompanied by another card on which Ashmun wrote: “The above is the last autograph of President Lincoln. It was written & given to me at half past 8 P.M. April 14, 1865, just as he & Mrs Lincoln were starting for the Theatre where he was assasinated.”
