Excerpt from A Short Life of Abraham Lincoln

Entente the essential purposes for which their armies had fought.

Conditions such as these inevitably gave rise to keen European interest in Lincoln's life, to writings about him in periodicals, to much conversation among in dividuals, with one notable English biography of him, the first ever written by an Englishman - Lord Charu wood's large volume in the Makers of the Nineteenth Century Series. A notable book was Lord Charm wood's, much read in this country for two years past, and called for in more than one edition soon after its publication. Readers were much imprest, not only by the author's grasp Of his theme and his literary gifts, but by his breadth Of view, his comprehension of the real things at issue in the American Civil War. Not a few readers saw in it qualities that reminded them Of Sir George Otto Trevelyan's The American Revolution, which to many had been found the most satisfying of all works on the subject.
