The visitors would yladlv istralion, in the Hlirrine; times of Ihe f'ivil war, it, possildy Heeins more im- porlanl, that we preserve Ihe, memory of this Krcaf man. The whole life of Lincoln was of the boy who worked and won, typical of the American boy who may UH- pire to the. highest honorn. fn view of the importance of thin centennial mini versa ry the directors of the public library have secured a bronze tablet with the ever-living words of the Oef.l.yHbiir^ nddress of Abraham Lincoln en^rnvcd thereon, that they may be in plain si^ht before the children and to those older n source of inHpira- tion to n. nohicr life, n truer c.iti/en- Hliip.
