Proceedings at the Seventh Annual Dinner of the Lincoln Society of Peekskill, N. y

Excerpt from Proceedings at the Seventh Annual Dinner of the Lincoln Society of Peekskill, N. Y: Eagle Hotel, Monday Evening, February 13, 1911 Your splendid hospitality, however, should give confidence and inspiration to discuss almost any subject, and when the subject is the life and character of the man in whose honor we are gathered to gether to-night, little else should be needed in the way of inspiration. The fact of the matter is that there is so much to be said upon the subject; it has so many sides, so many view points, so many phases and angles, that the danger 'is that the available time will be exceeded. For that reason and in order that I may not unwittingly trespass upon your patience, I have selected from the mass of what might well be said those things only which seems to me may best be said at this time, and will carefully confine myself to my manuscript and thus conclude my remarks while -yet some remain to listen. Abraham Lincoln was a great man. He was a wise man, a human man, a patient, honest, God-fearing, deep-think ing man. A man who would not Shirk a duty or dodge a responsibility. Some have said that he was the greatest man who ever lived. For myself I confess that I am helpless in the effort to form an opinion. The word greatest in volves the idea of comparison. My read ing of history and literature has not dis closed any character with whom he might appropriately be compared.
