Why are you reporting this puzzle?

The parlor on northwest side of house was where Abraham Lincoln officially received the news of his nomination for President in May of 1860.

Sculptor Leonard Volk recalled being in this room in January, 1861. He wrote, "His little parlor was full of friends and politicians. He introduced me to them all, and remarked to me aside that, since he had sat for me for his bust, he had lost forty pounds in weight. This was easily perceptible, for the lines of his jaws were very sharply defined through the short beard which he was allowing to grow."
