Description

This color print features President Abraham Lincoln seated on a log with his hands folded over his legs. Lincoln is depicted wearing a brown jacket and pants, along with a white collared shirt, black bow tie, and black top hat. A log cabin sits in the distance to the left, and a blue sky and large cloud are in the background. The image is framed with a white and orange border. The title "Rough Diamonds" is printed below the image with the following inscription below: "God sends great souls into the world clothed oftentimes in curious attire. And one misses much good fellowship who thinks that from what men seem to be he can determine what they are." "By special permission from the writings of Bruce Barton" is printed below that.
