PAGE 4 SECOND NEWS SECTION THE SPRINGFIELD NEWS-SUN SPRINGFIELD OHIO SUNDAY FEBRUARY 27 1938 INTIMATELY REVEALED IN DOCUMENTS Herndon Letters On Lincoln Are Printed Formerly Suppressed Material Detracts None From Greatness Of Man He Becomes Human THE HIDDEN LINCOLN From the Letters and Paper of William H Herndon Edited ay Emanuel Hertz Illustrated New York: The Viking Presa 4M pp 5 Finally after all these year all the material on the life of Abraham Lincoln that William Herndon hi law partner for 31 yean collected over a quarter of a century haa been published The reason for this delayed coming to life of the full story of the Civil War president la that large portions of Herndon's material heretofore has been con tittered ‘shocking" or at least of questionable taste In fact in 1889 Herndon and Jesse W Weik published a book on Lincoln containing much of this material and the public revolted against IL Herndon's collection which upon his death was left to Weik has been drawn upon by every biographer of Lincoln from Lamon to Bev eridge but certain portions especially that dealing with Lincoln's birth and his straying from the straight and narrow path of rectitude have been suppressed Now Emanuel Herts a noted Lincoln scholar has edited the letters and papers of the law partner and refrained from blue penciling There can he no question that Herndon knew Lincoln and his Intimate life from the time he came to Illinois to the time he left for Washington better than anyone else and that he was more in a position to gather data on Lincoln than anyone else According to Herndon's letters' and documents there were two Lincolns— the one so endeared to the American people a man who loved right and veracity "as per fret a man as God generally makes”— and on the other hand a man who ares cold secretive and ambitious one who always puzzled Mr Herndon It Is this latter man whom he attempted not so much to disclose as explain hy the documents he collected and planned to publish He was so thoroughly convinced of the greatness of Lincoln that he knew the truth about him would not detract from that greatness In that he was right For with all that Is uncovered Lincoln dors not suffer as a great man— he merely becomes human Highlights of the suppressed material Include the Information that Lincoln's mother was lllegithnata and that his father was not Thomas Lincoln but one Abraham En-loe that Lincoln acquired a venereal disease while a youth at Beards town This Is questioned by some Lincoln authorities but they add If It had been true It would be one way of accounting for Lincoln's alleged fits of Insanity after the death of Ann Rutledge for certain changes In his nature and possibly for Mrs Lincoln's Inability to get along with her huahand The book likewise reveala that Lincoln once wrote a book challenging the Divinity of Christ which his friends destroyed It discloses facts about Lincoln's tragic romance with Ann Rutledge and hla curious courtship of Mary Owens and that there is prima facie but not conclusive evidence that Lincoln was illegitimate himself These facta particularly concerning his miserable background which Herndon pictured as a most degrading one he believed explained Lincoln's persistent melancholia and other contradictory traits of his character There are three mora things which are Interesting One Is the statement that Lincoln read from 1830 to 1M1 two newspapers the New York Tribune and the Charleston Mercury Another Is a list of hooks Lincoln had access to "and sometimes peeped Into” — among them books by Darwin Emerson Carlyle Froude Lewes and Spencer The third Is the Information that In preparing his first Inaugural speech Lincoln used Henry Clay's speech of 1850 Jackson's proclamation against nullification Webster's reply to Calhoun and Haynes (of 1833) The book has very little editorial comment with the exception of the editor's Introduction telling the history of the Herndon letters There could be much more In the body of the volume although Its reproduction of the letters themselves Is Invaluable The following are reported by Brentano's hook stores as the best sellers of

in tha Malayan Jungle In "Pahang" and Flannery Lewis whose "Brooks Too Broad for Leaping" Is a story of boyhood Both books were published by Macmillan Myths Explained In Wholly New Manner H S Bellamy Allies Science With Mythology Bases Novel Story On Cosmic Ice Theory MOONS MYTHS AND MAN Ry H 8 Bellamy Nsw York: Harper and Brothers SSI pp with Index S3 rr Mythology Is painted in a brilliant word picture yet with lucidity in H S Bellamy'! book "Moons Myths and Man" in which ha allies science and myths in a wholly new and exciting style He presents that phase of mythology Identified with the cosmos in extraordinary manner Basing hla story on the Cosmic Ice Theory of Hans Hoerblger— which assumes that the moon was an independent planet captured by the earth about 13500 years ago— Bellamy shows how myths and legends all over the world may be Interpreted as true historic records of a cataclysmic event which mankind witnessed The author explains the Earth's capture of ths moon which at that time — 13500 years ago— was Identified as the planet Luna Ha contends that the fata of -tha moon or Luna mny some day be the fate of Mars— however In the very distant future "If it (Mars) contrives to slip past the Earth without being captured— eccentricity of orbit and mass may help It to this alternative fate— it will finally plunge Into the Sun" he pointed out and adds "this Is also the destiny of the Earth as tha last of tha hellolds" He views myths aa having genuine material background and contends that they describe ante-historical happenings of which only geology has up till now been able to give some account He phraaea myths as being history In disguise Among the myths which he ex amines with great cars are dragon and serpent myths god and giant myths Satanic myths myths of the deluge the ark the great Are and the creation He concludes with n discussion of man's oldest and most romantie tradition ths story of the lost Atlantis which has fired the Imaginations of countless writers One of tha most provocative chapters In Bellamy's "Moons Myths end Men" delves Into the Bible The Bible he says "represents a fair though entirely arbitrary selection of writings which an neither historical nor mythological In any strict sense So tha mythotagUt if ha is willing to dig may still come upon fragments of true myths of undoubted origin silty and antiquity The most In tereatlng passages In Biblical literature from the standpoint of the mythotaglst are the scanty hut significant apocalyptic fragments" Among the several examples which Bellamy presents and interprets Is ths dragon myth (Ths Revelation of John xll 1) "And there appeared another wonder In heaven a great dragon having seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns upon his heads And his tail draw ths third part of the stars of heaven and did cast them to tha Earth And there was wsr In heaven Michael and hla angels fought against the dragon And the great dragon was cast out that old serpent called the Devil and Satan which decelveth the whole world he was cast out unto ths Earth and hla angels wen cost out with him And when ths dragon saw that ha was east unto ths Earth ha cast out of his mouth water as a flood and tha Earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon east out of hla mouth' Ths author la a Vleness mythol-nglst and student of languages The
