Lincoln, Truth meet


40-A_Lincoln-miniTruth meets with President Lincoln. She writes:

He showed as much kindness and consideration to the colored persons as to the whites — if there was any difference, more.

Truth: I appreciate you, for you are the best president who has ever taken the seat.
Lincoln: I expect you have reference to my having emancipated the slaves in my proclamation.
Truth: I thank God that you were the instrument selected by him and the people to do it. I had never heard of you before you were president.

Lincoln smilingly replied: I had heard of you many times before that.
