Dr. Williams, You are almost right. Every word you cited indeed came from Mr. Lincoln. But those were not by any means the last words. In his second inaugural address, immediately before the famous, "With malice toward none. . ." We find these words--hardly the thoughts of a friend of slavery: "Yet, if God wills that it [the war] continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said "the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether." Certainly Lincoln was no saint; but neither was he a hypocrite.
