Talbot and his son James were called to Mrs. Cren-shaws classroom. Mr. Talbot, said the teacher, I asked James Who shot Abraham Lincoln? and he said that he didnt do it! Well, teacher, said Talbot, if my kid said he didnt do it he didnt do it! Father and son left the school, and on their way home Talbot turned to the boy and asked, Tell me, son, did you do it?
