A Tribute to Lincoln

To Lincoln may be applied the words which a Chinese historian uses in describing the character of Yao, the most revered and honored of the ancient rulers of China. Thus it is written: "His benevolence was boundless, his wisdom was profound; to any one approaching, he had the genial warmth of the sun; when reviewed at a distance, he seemed to have the mysterious ways of the clouds; though occupying the highest station, he was not haughty; though controlling the resources of the whole nation, he was not lavish; justice was the guiding principle of his motives; nobleness was written on every lineament of his face."
