A vignetted inset in the upper left corner features the text of a poem by Mary Eyre Wintersmith Robertson about Abraham Lincoln. A circular inset below the poem features an illustration of Lincoln's birthplace cabin. The caption is printed along the bottom edge of the image. A white border surrounds the entire image.
