legislator Lincoln did not rise above the rank and routine politician At first he xvas regarded as a sort of nonentity in home spun But he was honest that is le kept his promises and stood by his announced convictions When urged to trade his vote he replied you will never get me to support a measure which I believe to ba ivrong although by doing so I may accomplish that which I believe to be

aware that tragic drama followed him everywhere He had a sense of honor that was both profound and peculiar His devotion to what he thought was right was almost unbeliev able Was Deeply Religious
