Francis B. Carpenter, Six Months at the White House, Xxxiii. (search)
Xxxiii. My friend, the Hon. Robert Dale Owen, was associated in a very interesting interview with Mr. Lincoln, which too in contemplation by the Executive. Being in Washington, Mr. Owen called upon the President on a Saturday morning, and saidon the subject, I can give you as much time as you wish. Mr. Owen assured him of his readiness to come at any hour most congain. Looking vainly for a servant to announce his name, Mr. Owen finally went to the office-door, and knocked. Really,he same time unfolding a manuscript of large proportions, Mr. Owen said: I have a paper, here, Mr. President, that I rebellion. I had read but two or three pages, said Mr. Owen, in giving me this account, when Mr. Lincoln assumed an ere Upon the conclusion of the manuscript, Mr. Lincoln said: Mr. Owen, is that for me? Certainly, sir, said Mr. O., handing marked O, in his desk. Returning to his chair, he said: Mr. Owen, it is due to you that I should say that you have conferr

xposed, if he once was aroused in search of truth. If his perceptions were perverted, distorted, and diseased, would to Heaven that more minds were so. The true peculiarity of Mr. Lincoln has not been seen by his various biographers; or, if seen, they have failed wofully to give it that prominence which it deserves. It is said that Newton saw an apple fall to the ground from a tree, and beheld the law of the universe in that fall; Shakspeare saw human nature in the laugh of a man; Professor Owen saw the animal in its claw; and Spencer saw the evolution of the universe in the growth of a seed. Nature was suggestive to all these men. Mr. Lincoln no less saw philosophy in a story, and a schoolmaster in a joke. No man, no men, saw nature, fact, thing, or man from his stand-point. His was a new and original position, which was always suggesting, hinting something to him. Nature, insinuations, hints, and suggestions were new, fresh, original, and odd to him. The world, fact, man, p
