After this is: "Lincoln's Inaugural" with the nice front page printing of his historic inaugural address, containing near the end the famous words: "...With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wound...".
