Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

Speech in Virginia, Illinois [1]

February 23, 1844

We had a meeting at night, and on the morning of the 23d, addresses were received from Mr. Killpatrick [2] and Mr. Lincoln. They portrayed the absurdities of loco focoism, and the soundness of whig principles, with great success.
