Quote from Jan Morris...[edit]

In the second paragraph Jan Morris is quoted about RTL being "an unsympathetic bore". This is the only time Morris's scholarship or opinion is mentioned or even referenced in the article - does that sentence really need to be there?

Welsh author Jan Morris wrote that Robert Lincoln "having failed fifteen out of sixteen subjects in the Harvard entrance examination, got in at last and emerged an unsympathetic bore."

keep. Jan Morris did the research and is a well-established historian with lots of awards. From my reading I would say she represents the consensus view of RT Lincoln.. Rjensen (talk) 19:09, 29 December 2019 (UTC)

Recent changes to children's names in infobox[edit]

Should they appear to the casual reader as:

Mamie, "Jack"(Abraham Lincoln II), Jessie

or as:

Mamie Lincoln Isham, Abraham Lincoln II, Jessie Harlan Lincoln

or?...
