Abraham Lincoln says:

"If the great American people will only keep their temper, on both sides of the line, the troubles will come to an end, and the question which now distracts the country will be settled just as surely as all other difficulties of like character which have originated in this government have been adjusted.

Let the people on both sides keep their self-possession, and just as other clouds have cleared away in the time, so will this and this great nation shall continue to prosper as heretofore."

Speech, Pittsburgh, Pa. Feb.15, 1861
