Excerpt from A Discourse on the Death of Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States: Delivered on the Day of the National Fast, June 1, 1865, at the Congregational Church, Salisbury, Conn
The occasion is too solemn for eulogy. It is a time for tears, for lamentation, and mourning and woe, for humiliation before God, not for the glorifying of man. It is not so much the man that we are to regard, as the President, the official head of the nation, the high and mighty interests that were intrusted to him, and the meaning and intent of his sudden removal.
