The explanation q( this e»tjaqr

Chance to judge him seems incredible

of intimacy in nis case.
Never in the history of the world
a'as there a great man so entirely and
consistently his natural self. He was
homely and ungainly and poorly
dressed—and he knew it. and jqked
about it. He was entirely self-made—
and he was pot proud of the job. He
was ambitious—and frankly admitted
it. He was so medesf. so honest, and
so "easy” that not a tew thought he
must be simple-minded. He was easy

To be sure, there wepe some who
came to appreciate Lincoln before his

We know nqw, among other thin<r*.
that this self made man from the log

this backwoodj circqit rider was not
only an honest lawyer, bui a gr-.at law-

story-telling used his art with a pur-
pose; that this cross-roads debater and
political stump speaker was an orator
to whom it was given to speak words
that are immortal—words that are as
much a part of the national heritage
as the Declaration of Independence and
We know now—npt some of u«, but
$.11 of us—that this m^n who saved the
union by force of arms and brought
peace out of the hell of civil war did
these great things tfl gn even greater
spirit; that he wrought "with ms'ic*
toward none, with charity for all."
And we know new thftt th:i man,
vyho was so human thai he did not
