He arrived at the White House quite opportunely, and was introduced to the President by the United States Marshal, with his blandest smile. while shaking hands with the President the paymaster remarked, “I have no official business with you, Mr. President, I only called to pay my compliments.” “I understand,” replied “honest Abe,” and from the complaints of the soldiers, I think that is all you do pay.”

I'm a lover of God and His Son Jesus Christ. In addition I love to make yesterday's words come alive through the republishing of good and profitable books of old. The Civil War project is an ongoing labor of love. - Karan
