A Sferine of Democracy.
"No more significant memorial |
could have been presented to the nation
than -this. It expresses so much |
of what is singular and noteworthy in :

so many of the things that we prize

the power of mind and heart and

history submits its processes. Nature

"but serenely chooses its own comrades.

This little hut was the cradle of one

singular, delightful, vital genius who

stage of the nation's history, gaunt,

wfcere every door is open, in every
iuunlet and countryside, in city and
wilderness alike, for the ruler to
emerge when .he will and claim his
leadership in the free life. Such are
the authentic proofs of the validity
and vitality of democracy.
"Here, no less, hides the mystery of
democracy. Who s>hall_ guess this secret

sprang;, its mere vigor and soundness
do not explain where this man got his

i'mong many. The permeating and
ail pervasive virtue of th<| freedom
vhich challenges us in America to
make the most of every gift ard
INcwer we possess every page of our
history serves to emphasize and illustrate.
Standing there in this place, it
tvems almost the whole of the stirri'.-g
"Here Lincoln had his beginnings.
Here th.e end and consummation of
that great life seem remote ana a diz
incredible. And yet, there was no
break anywhere between beginning
'irid end, no lack of natural sequence
anywhere. Nothing really incredible
happened. Lincoln was unaffectedly
as much at home in the White House
as he was here. Do you share with
me the feeling, I wonder that he was
^permanently at home nowhere? It
seems to me that in the case of a
man?I would rather say of a spirit?
like Lincoln the question where he
was is of little significance, that it is
always what he was that really arrests
our thought and takes hold of
our imagination. It is the spirit always
that s sovereign. Lincoln, like
the rest of us, was put through the
discipline of the world?a yery rough
and exacting discipline for him, an
indispensable discipline for every man
who would know what he is about in
the midst of the world's affairs; but
his spirit got only its schooling there.
It did not derive its character or ite
vision from the experiences which
brought it to its full revelation. The
oct r>f pvprv American must alwayc
CVkJ b Wi V . J
be, not where the is^ but what he is.
That, also, is of the essence of democracy,
and is the moral of which this
place is most gravely expressive.
"We would like to think of men
like Lincoln and (Washington as typi
cal Americans, but no man can be
typical who is so unusual as these
great men were.' It was tiypical of
(American life that it should produce
such men with supreme indifference
as to the manner in wMcn it produced
them, and as readily here in
this hut as amidst the little circle J
cultivated gentlemen to wh.om Virginia
owed so much in leadership an-1
example. And Lincoln and Washington
were typical Americans in the
use they made of their genius. But
there will be few such men at best,
and we will not look into the mystery
of how and why they come. Wo
will only keep the door open for them
' always and a hearty welcome?after
we have recognized them.
>o Real Inmates.
> "I have read many biographies of
Lincoln; I have sought out with tho
greatest interest the many intimate
stories thai are told of him. the narratives
of nearby friends, the sketches
nt; close'quarters, in which those who
had the privilege of being associated
with lrim hare tried to depict for u 5

| 4i ^
1 "he lived;" but I have nowhere found
a real intimate of Lincoln's. I nowhere
get the impression in any narrative
or reminiscence that the writer
hard in fact penetrated to the 'hetart
of his mystery, or that any man coulcl
penetrate to the heart of it. That
J brooding spirit nad no real familiars. ,
I I get the impression that it never j
j spoke out in complete self revelation
i and that it could not reveal itself
i completely to any one. It was a very
" . ...
lonely spirit that looked out irora j
underneath those shaggy brows an J j
comprehended men without fully com - J
muning with them, as if, in spite of
| all its genial efforts at comradeship,
j it dwelt apart, saw its visions of dutv,
| where no man looked on. There is 'i |
| very holy and very terrible isolation
j for the conscience of every man who
| seeks to read the destiny in affairs for
! others as well as for himself for a
1 nation as well as for individuals. That
J privacy no man can intrude upon.
I That lonely search of the spirit for the
f right perhaps no man <&n assist. This

"I have come here todaiy, not to i

His wife, a beautiful Armenian princess,

came to be a Persian diplomatic representative.
He was a relative of the
shah, had been educated in several
countries in Europe and had become
interested in the Christian religion as
the root force of western civilization.
Prince Malkolm told us how he studied
and pondered long to bit upon

"My cousin, you are much followed
