An Appreciation of Lincoln
COPYRIGHT. 1909. BY ROBERTUS LOVE
S OMEWHAR down thar round Hodgenville, Kaintucky,
Or tharabouts, a hundred year ago,
Was born a boy ye wouldn' thought was lucky; -t
Looked like he never wouldn' have a show.
But * * * I don' know.
That boy was started middlin' well, I'm thinkin'. 1
His name W'y, it was Abraham-Abe Lincoln. I
ORE whites his folks was? Yes, as pore as any,
Them rpioneers, they wa'n't no plutocrats;
Belonged right down among the humble many,
And no more property than dogs or cats. .
But * * * maybe that's
As good a way as any for a startin'.
Abe Lincoln, he riz middlin' high, for sartin!
SOMEHOW I've always had a sort o' sneakin'
Idee that peddygren is purty much
Like monkeys' tails-so long they're apt to weaken
The yap that drags 'em round. No use for such!
But * * * beats the Dutch
How now and then a lad like Little Aby
Grows up a president-or guvnor, maybe.

ABE LINCOLN never had no reg'lar schoolin';
He never quarterbacked nor pulled stroke oar,
Nor never spent his time and money foolin'
With buried langwidges and ancient lore.
But * * * Abe l'arned more
To set him forrerd in the human filin'
Than all the college fellers' kit and bilin'.
AE LINCOLN never did git hifalutin
Not even thar in Washin'ton, D. C.
He jist kep' common, humble, ord'n'ry, suitin'
His backwoods corn patch raisin' to a T.
But * * * jiminy gee!
W'y, Abe was any statesman's peer and ekul
And wise as Solomon or old Ezekul.
I RECKON I'm a bit old fashioned, maybe,
But when I want a pattern for a man
I'm middlin' shore to measure Father Aby
And cut to fit his homely human plan.
And long 's I can
I'm hootin' loud and rootin' proud, by hucky,
For that old boy from Hodgenville, Kaintucky!
The Gettysburg Address
Remarks at the Dedication of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg.,
November 19. 1863.
F OURSCORE and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon
this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated
to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that
nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.
We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedi
cate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who here
gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting
and proper that we should do this.
But in a .larger sense we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate,
we cannot hallow, this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who
struggled here have consecrated it far above our power to add or de
tract. The world will little r )te L. n - remember what we say here,
but it can never forget what t.:ey did here. It is for us, the living,
rather, to be dedicated here to the uuiniched work which they who
fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to
be here dedicated to the great task r- gaining before us-that from
these honored dead we take increased '-votion to that cause for which
they gave the last full measure-6f dF potion; that we here highly re.
solve that these dead shall not have di- 1 in vain; that this nation, under
God, shall have a new birth of free_.ora, and that government of the
people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth.

ministers foregather there to orate and

and of laughter. He, the babe that
came here of parents poor and almost
illiteraie, is the reason for the temple,
for the crowds and for the oratory.
He is likewise the reason for the na
tion existing at all in Its present form.
So these humble acres are not all un
productive, even though they cannot
grow crops, for they brought forth a
great soul to lead a people from bond
age and to place before men's eyes a
type of charity and forbearance that
will make us all tenderer and better
for having seen.
The Lincoln farm, after passing out
of the ownership of Thomas Lincoln,
belonged for many years to a family
of the name of Creal, after which it
was bought by a New York capitalist,
a Mr. Dennett, who made some im
provements on it with the idea of
changing It into a national park. This
was abandoned, however, because of
business reverses. The farm became
tied up In the litigation of the Den
nett estate and for years was neglect
ed. At last it was sold at public auc
tion by the authorities of Larue coun
ty, Ky., when it was purchased by
Richard Lloyd Jones as a representa
tive of Robert J. Collier. A Lincoln
farlm association was formed, withl
Governor Folk of Missouri at its head
and various distinguished men on its
directorate. To this body Mr. Collier
turned over the farm, popular sub
scriptions were raised, a memorial
building wan: erected, and other Im
provements were made. As a result
the Lincoln Pir;clll: e farm on Feb.
12 will be opened to tihe public as a
national park. From a scenic aspect
it is a beautiful spot. Near to the
plaza fronting the memorial buildilng
is the famous rock spring, and not far
distant is a picturesque creek, on the
banks of which the boy Lincoln play
In addition to the dedication of the
farm, a statue of Lincoln will be un
veiled In HIodgenville. More important
still, It Is now practically certain that
some form of memorial will 1e erected
at Washington. a step that should
have been taken long ago.
Everything connected with Abra
ham Lincoln Is held precious by the
American people. IIls birthplace and
his tomb, his acts and his words, the
Iteople with whom he associated, all
are objects of a polpular Inte-est such
as has been aroused by few men in
the history of nations. Compared
with Lincolh's simple greatness most
of the characters grouped around him
suffer by contrast. This is true even
of WJ tamldlr. or one I feel that Jus
tice has never been done Mrs. Lincoln.
She was not without a prophetic qual
ity in divining her husband's future
eminence, she had spiritual insight,
She suffered many sorrows, and de
spite her difference from Mr. Lincoln
in temperament and inherited manners
and beliefs she was loyal to him
One other character has been mini
mized much in the same way-William
H. Seward, Lincoln's chief competitor
for the presidential nomination and
afterward his secretary of state. One
thing that can be said for Seward is
that he was man enough to acknowl
edge Lincoln's greatness when he saw
it. He refused to plot against his
chief, as did some of his fellow mem
hers of the cabinet. He was a wise
•ounselor and unselfish statesman. He
had enough foresight to buy Alaska
when the public scoffed at him for the
act. The truth about Seward is that
he was of a very high type, but not
withstanding his height was over
Mr. Lincoln's life falls into two
great divisions-that preceding the re
peal of the Missouri compromise and
the formation of the Republican par
ty and that following these twin
events. His one term in congress was
the last important public service in
the first period. Following this were
five or 'ix years of law with little or
no politics. In congress Lincoln had
gained a reputation as a story teller
and wit, had made one or two cam
paign speeches, had introduced a
measure to abolish slavery in the Dis
trlct of Columbia and had refused to
say that the Mexican war was right
eous. Following his term he had sp
plied for the office of land commission
er, to which he had not been appolnt
ed, and had been offered the governor
ship of Oregon, which he declined. In
1850 he refused another nomination
to congress and in 1852 delivered a
eulogy on Henry Clay. It was in 1854
that he really re-entered politics, be
ing stirred thereto by the repeal of
the Missouri compromise. That year
he was elected to the legislature, but
refused to serve. He was also a can
dlidate for United States senator, com
ing within a few votes of winning.
'With rare unselfishness he threw all
his strength to Lyman Trumbull and
elected him. For Lincoln to go to
Trumbull, who had but a handful of
supporters, was like the tail wagging
the dog, but it prevented the election
of a proslavery man.
In 18.6 Mr. Lincoln participated in
the formation of the Republican party,
making his great "lost speech" at
Bloomington. He also received 110
votes for vice president in the Repub
lican national convention and ran for
elector on the Fremont ticket. Two
years later came his great debates
with Douglas, which were held at Ot
tawa, Freeport, Jonesboro, Charleston,
Galesburg, Quincy and Alton. As a
result he had a popular majority, but
was beaten by holdover senators and
Following the struggle with Doug
las Mr. Lincoln made speeches in Ohio,
Kansas, New England and the famous
address in Cooper Union, New York.
Early in 1860 the Illinois state conven
tion instructed for him for president,
and in the national convention that
met at Chicago, May 16-19, he was
nominated on the third ballot. In the
following campaign Mr. ,lncoln re
mained at home and declined to make
speeches. The Democratic party split
on slavery, which made his election
possible. Following the announcement
of the result many of the southern
states seceded, but the president elect
refused to be drawn into any public
utterance as to his policy. On Feb. 11,
1861, he started to Washington, mak
ing a few short addresses on the way
and secretly passing through Balti
