Excerpt from Through Five Administrations: Reminiscences of Colonel William H. Crook, Body-Guard to President Lincoln

But toward the end Of 1864 so much pressure was brought to bear On him, particularly by Marshal Lamon and Secretary Stanton, that he finally yielded. He had admitted to Ward Lamon before this that he knew there was danger from a Pole named Garowski, who had been seen skulking about the White House grounds. He told Lamon of a shot that had barely missed him one day when he was riding to the so] diers' Home. Conspiracies to abduct or assassinate the President were constantly being rumored. At first he contended that if any one wanted to murder him no precaution would avail. Finally, although he was always more or less of this opinion, the President gave way to the anxieties Of those near to him. He consented to the daily guard of police Officers, and, on longer journeys, to a cavalry guard.
