Topic: True Democratic Freedom

[George Richmond Grose, in the Star-News, Pasadena, California]

A fresh excursion into the life of Abraham Lincoln leaves upon the writer a vivid impression of one quality of his religion—its common sense.

We need to remember also that Lincoln's faith must be interpreted against the religious background of his age.
