Abraham Lincoln Says

"It seems to me that Douglas got the best of it at the election last fall.

I am left to face an empty treasury and a great rebellion while my own party endorses his popular sovereignty idea and applies it in legislation. . . I only wish I could have got there to lock the door before the horse was stolen.

But when I get to the spot, I can find the tracks."

As he left for Washington, D.C. Feb. 11, 1861
