Appealing typescript signed by Carl Sandburg, one page, 5 x 7.5, concerning Abraham Lincoln and his referencing of the Declaration of Independence, in full: “The occasions were frequent when Lincoln paid his respects and reverence to the Declaration of Independence, when too he spoke of the insignificance of individuals, including himself, in the presence of that document and its enunciation that ‘all men are created equal.’ In this speech, if or when it should be conclusively established as an accurate report of what he said, Lincoln surpassed himself in his other tributes to the Declaration of Independence and in his sinking of self before a great human cause.” In fine condition.
