President Andrew Johnson was not among tose who consoled Mary Lincoln while she stayed in bed in the Executive Mansion after the assassination.

He had rushed to Petersen’s Boarding House on assassination night, but Mrs. Lincoln was not welcoming.

To avoid encountering her again, he did presidential business from a small office in the Treasury Building while he waited almost six weeks for her to move out of the Executive Mansion.

Later, she would write to him to seek jobs for her friends and staff.
