North-South and Quiet
On the way to Washington,
“At one Ohio stop, Lincoln remarked that the situation between the North and the South reminded him of his two younger boys. One had a toy the other wanted and demanded it in belligerent terms. After a while he was ordered to let his brother have the toy to quiet him. “No, sir!” he retorted. “I need it to quiet myself!”
Hayes, Mr. Lincoln Runs for President, p. 268.
