Wonderful addition to my library. While I have read the contents of these manuscripts many times and even seen some of them personally, they are all here in one book. The fact that Lincoln wrote these and many more - shrinks the current crop of presidents for sure. His corrections in the writings is almost eerie to see. He did not have speechwriters - unlike today - nor any teleprompter to refer to. This is one of my most prized books in my library now.
