Description

This print is the official proclamation by the governor of Massachusetts setting aside February 12, 1925, to be observed as Lincoln Day "with the recommendation that it be appropriately observed in the churches, schools, in the homes, and wherever our people come together. Let this day be reminded of the patriotism of Lincoln, who sixty-four years ago said: "Why should there not be a patient confidence in the ultimate justice of the people? Is there any better or equal hope in the world?" The Governor's handwritten signature in black ink is just below his printed name at the end of the document. With the exception of the paper on which the proclamation is printed, this is a duplicate of 71.2009.081.2303. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
