Example text

Inasmuch as our country is extensive and new, and the countries of Europe are densely populated, if there are any abroad who desire to make this the land of their adoption, it is not in my heart to throw aught in their way, to prevent them from coming to the United States. —Speech to Germans at Cincinnati, Ohio, February 12, 1861 There is more involved in this contest than is realized by every one. There is involved in this struggle the question whether your children and my children shall enjoy the privileges we have enjoyed.

I started with 44 votes and T. [Trumbull] with 5. It is rather hard for the 44 to have to surrender to the 5 and a less good humored man than I, perhaps, would not have consented to it,—and it would not have been done without my consent. I could not, however, let the whole political result go to smash, on a point merely personal to myself. —Letter to W. H. Henderson, February 21, 1855 Born, February 12, 1809, in Hardin County, Kentucky. Education defective. Profession, a lawyer. Have been a captain of volunteers in Black Hawk War.

Letter to John T. Stuart, Lincoln’s law partner, January 23, 1841. Having broken his engagement to Mary Todd weeks before writing this letter, Lincoln fell into a deep depression. Since then, it seems to me, I should have been entirely happy but for the never-absent idea that there is one still unhappy whom I have contributed to make so. That kills my soul. I cannot but reproach myself for even wishing to be happy while she is otherwise. —Lincoln’s letter to his lifelong friend Joshua F. Speed, referring to his broken engagement with Mary Todd, March 1842 Nothing new here, except my marrying, which to me, is matter of profound wonder.
