LINCOLN, ABRAHAM. 1809-1865.
Inaugural Message of Abraham Lincoln President of the United States. [n.p.: n.p.], Monday, March 4, 1861.
Broadside, 656 x 209 mm, text in three columns, verso blank, five creases, light damp-stain running along left margin and touching text, gently foxed.
Provenance: Mrs. J. Jackson (penciled ownership inscription).

Broadside issue of Lincoln's first inaugural address, most famous for is conciliatory final passages: "I am loth to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot's grave, to every living heart and hearthstone, all over this broad land, will yet sell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."
