an open mind. Ho wns not above
liking change for his own sake, monot

In 18T3 Lincoln wore n benrd.
In 1837 nnd 185S he was beardless.
During the debate with Douglas he
was growing a beard.
The day after his first nomlnntton
the beard wns gone.

show tlu full beard, but before 1S04
was ended the Lincoln face was
