Whip For President Lincoln

The American Whip Company, of Charlestown, have manufactured a magnificent whip, which is to be presented to President Lincoln.  A portion of the stock is ivory, elaborately carved, with patriotic devices, and a raised portrait of the President.  The remainder of the stock is a hickory stick, with silver tipped knots.  The ferrules are of gold, and on one is an appropriate inscription.
