全世界的人们都熟悉林肯的长相,至少熟悉他那留着大胡子的脸,也许正是因为那满脸的大胡子,他才会在1860年的总统选举中获胜,但是他的胡子并不是一直就有的,而是后来为了一个小女孩才留起来的。这件事发生在150多年前,因此格蕾丝没有使用现代英语语法,但她的信写得很有意思,在此摘录部分内容:

  "I am a little girl only eleven years old but want you should be President of the United States very much, so I hope you won't think me very bold to write such a great man as you are..."And then Grace went on,

"I have got 4 brothers, part of them will vote[投票] for you any way, and if you will let your whiskers[络腮胡] grow I will try and get the rest of them to vote. You would look a great deal better for your face is so thin.

All the ladies like whiskers and they would tease[哄] their husbands to vote for you and then you would be President... "

Lincoln took Grace Bedell's advice, and over the next two weeks he did not shave[刮胡子].By Election Day on November 6th of 1860,he already had enough whiskers to make a short beard.And he did get selected.Maybe his new beard had something to do with that.And he did wear the beard for the rest of his life.
