Abraham Lincoln Says

"Some of my; generals complain that I impair discipline and subordination in the army by my pardons and respites, but it makes me rested after a day's hard work if I can find some good excuse for saving a man's life, and I go to bed happy as I think how joyous the signing of my name will make him and his family and friends."

Remark to Schuyler Colfax, Speaker of the House
