BeschreibungExcerpt from Was Abraham Lincoln an Infidel? The Religious Character of Abraham Lincoln as It Appears in the Light of His Spoken and Written Word
In offering this book to the public, the writer does not claim any personal merits for its con tents. It is simply a collection or compilation of the religious words of Abraham Lincoln as they were reported in the newspapers, magazines or biographies of Lincoln before, during and after the Civil War. Whenever the writer found such words, he clipped them from the papers or copied and carefully preserved them in a scrap book. After many years he found that he had a very interesting and valuable collection.
The first words collected were the farewell address of Lincoln to the citizens of Springfield, reported in the papers on February 12, 1861, forty-nine years ago. In ordinary times this address would only have created a passing inter est, and I would not have considered it worth keeping; but at that time the American people were kept in such a state of intense excitementby rumors of a threatening war, and such a dark cloud of coming unknown calamities lay over the country, that I felt as if other words of Lincoln would follow, and I collected them as soon as they were published.
