Dr. Johnston's skill and worth soon secured him not only a laage with which he defended his Church. One of General Johnston's earliest recollections was of his grandfathehio, but lost it by the intrusion of squatters.

who will not turn away from him in any extremity. He notes the fall of a sparrow, and numbers the hairs of our heads; and He will not forget the dying man who puts his trust in him. Say to him that if we could meet now it is doubtful whether it would not be more painful than pleasant; but that if it be his lot to go now he will soon have a joyous meeting with the many loved ones gone before, and where the rest of us, through the help of God, hope ere long to join them. Ms. letter to John Johnston, Jan. 12, 1851. Nancy Hanks, the mother of the President, at a very early age was taken from her mother Lucyafterwards married to Henry Sparrow — and sent to live with her aunt and uncle, Thomas and Betsy Sparrow. Under this same roof the irrepressible and cheerful waif, Dennis Hanks Dennis Hanks, still living at the age of ninety years in Illinois, was the son of another Nancy Hanks — the aunt of the President's mother.

ndance of wild game, there were a great many deer-licks; and Abe and myself would go to these licks sometimes and watch of nights to kill deer, though Abe was not so fond of a gun or the sport as I was. Mr. Lincoln used to relate the following coon story: His father had at home a little yellow house-dog, which invariably gave the alarm if the boys undertook to slip away unobserved. after night had set in — as they oftentimes did — to go coon-hunting. One evening Abe and his step-brother, John Johnston, with the usual complement of boys required in a successful coon hunt, took the insignificant little cur with them. They located the coveted coon, killed him, and then in a sportive vein sewed the hide on the diminutive yellow dog. The latter struggled vigorously during the operation of sewing on, and being released from the hands of his captors made a bee-line for home. Other large and more important canines, on the way, scenting coon, tracked the little animal home, and possibly

Taylor's father was the second for Johnston, and William Whitten officiated in a similar capacity for Grigsby. They had alor, and it soon became apparent that Grigsby was too much for Lincoln's man, Johnston.

ame down the Sangamon river in a canoe in March, 1831; landed at what is now called Jamestown, five miles east of Springfield, then known as Judy's Ferry. Here Johnston joined them, and, leaving their canoe in charge of one Uriah Mann, they walked to Springfield, where after some inquiry they found the genial and enterprising Ofs while Offut sewed up their eyes. Still they wouldn't drive. At last, becoming tired, we carried them to the boat. Abe received them and cut open their eyes, Johnston and I handing them to him. After thus disposing of the hog problem they again swung loose and floated down-stream. From the Sangamon they passed to the Illinoi June the entire party, including Offut, boarded a steamboat going up the river. At St. Louis they disembarked, Offut remaining behind while Lincoln, Hanks, and Johnston started across Illinois on foot. At Edwardsville they separated, Hanks going to Springfield, while Lincoln and his stepbrother followed the road to Coles county

His father, Dr. John Johnston, the village physician, was a native of Connecticut. He was a handsome, proud, manly, earnest and self-reliant boy, grave and thoughtful. After studying atwas bitterly criticised, and deputations to the President demanded his removal, to whom Mr. Davis replied: If Sidney Johnston is not a general, I have none. But Johnston bore himself with serenity and planned a campaign which should restore the public confidence. Corinth was the base from whence he could concentrate his whole fw him back on Owl creek where he will be compelled to surrender. Success everywhere attended the Confederate arms, till finally, to gain a difficult position, Johnston rode before the brigades of Bowen and Statham, and reaching the center turned and led a charge that swept the enemy to the rear.
