Best Answer

Her temper.

Mr. Barrett said that he was passing the Lincoln's home in 1857 and saw Mr. Lincoln being chased by a little squatty woman carrying a knife. He soon recognized the woman as Mary Lincoln. Abraham was running down eighth street when he saw some people at a nearby church. He came to a sudden stop, turned and caught the woman by the back of her neck and the seat of her draws and pushed her squealing back into the house.

Another time, Mrs. Lincoln asked Abraham, while he was reading, to put more wood on the fire. A few minutes later she asked him again. Now, the fire was about out and again Mary asked Abraham to put some more wood on the fire. When he didn't respond, she picked up a piece of wood and smacked him on the nose. He went to court the next day with his nose in a bandage and plastered up.
