Excerpt from Lincoln and New Salem The edition of the little pamphlet explanatory of the Objects and purposes of this League, termed by it a Prospectus of The Old Salem Lincoln League for the Restoration of New Salem, the Early Home of Abraham Lincoln, has been exhausted and it has become necessary to supply something in its place. We as sumed that the people generally' knew that New Salem was Lin; coln's Alma Mater, that he came to New Salem a friendless, over grown boy, uncouth and uneducated, with a knowledge of only the barest rudiments of reading, writing and arithmetic; that during the six-years of his residence here, his character was formed; his education completed, his name of honest Abe ac quired; the pathway his feet were to tread during his future life blazed, and his great heart broken by the loss of his first love, the one great romance and tragedy of his life. We find, however, that many of our people have been so en grossed with other matters, more personal to them, that they have failed to acquaint themselves with this phase of Lincoln's life.
