PREFACE

But a single word is necessary. Every reader will easily understand that a “campaign” life of any man, got up with despatch, is like neither “ Boswell's Johnson” nor “ Lockhart's Scott.” They were the work of years—this of days. But it is believed that this is an accurate life of Mr. Lincoln in every respect, and as such, we send it forth to take its share in the great work of making Abraham Lincoln next President of these United States.

D. W. B.

WASHington, D. C., June 1st, 1860.
