Lincoln's ghost

I have reached the point in Wacky in WhoVille where the ghost of Abraham Lincoln shows up.

Just, FYI.

And no, not the famous Mary Todd Lincoln/Abraham Lincoln ghost photograph produced -- notice I did not say taken -- by notorious spirit photographer William H. Mumler.

The version reproduced here, by the way, has been reversed. In the original the ghost is behind her left shoulder. This version has instead a hint of another ghost over her left shoulder, perhaps indicating the presence of Willie Wallace Lincoln, their son who died at the age of 11 in 1862.
