Christmas Morning in 1861
"Standing barefoot—as is the rule—in the doorway at the first gleam of dawning light, christmas morning; I performed, three times over, the "christmas tune" etc. That made the fiftieth time without missing a single christmas."
--From a letter by Gideon Lincecum, January 4, 1861
