BEYOND the fact that he was born on the 12th day of February, 1809, in Hardin county, Kentucky, Mr. Lincoln usually had but little to say of himself, the lives of his parents, or the history of the family before their removal to Indiana. If he mentioned the subject at all, it was with great reluctance and significant reserve. There was something about his origin he never cared to dwell upon. His nomination for the Presidency in 1860, however, made the publication of his life a necessity, and attracted to Springfield an army of campaign biographers and newspaper men. They met him in his office, stopped him in his walks, and followed him to his house. Artists came to paint his picture, and sculptors to make his bust. His autographs were in demand, and people came long distances to shake him by the hand. This sudden elevation to national prominence found Mr. Lincoln unprepared in a great measure for the unaccustomed demonstrations that awaited him. While he was easy of approach and equally courteous to all, yet, as he said to me one evening after a long day of hand-shaking, he could not understand why people should make so much over him.

William Henry Herndon and Jesse Weik's Abraham Lincoln the True Story of a Great Life, published in 1892, is a voluminous biography of one of the greatest statesmen in American history. This could be regarded as an authoritative resource due to the main fact that Mr. Herndon himself was a good friend and law partner of the former President of the United States. The co-author knew him even before he married or was elected to Congress. He also had the privilege of being invited by former President Lincoln to join him in a new legal partnership and of being described as by the latter as "my man always above all other men on the globe." Despite Mr. Herndon's close association with the American leader who abolished slavery, he still did his share of research, gathering accounts relating to President Lincoln's life in order to present an accurate picture of him as a real man rather than a saint, which is what the official biographers did. Mr. Weik assisted in rewriting and doing supplementary research work in order to update the work that his co-biographer has already accomplished. He also provided financial support and rewrote most of the initial draft. What we have now is a very detailed portrait of the assassinated President, covering two volumes. This edition is the first part, covering the subject's birth up to his first appearance at the Illinois Supreme Court. Despite Mr. Herndon's close association to President Lincoln, there are some portions in this book that would require more prudence, as they have been refuted by the subject's own son. Nevertheless, admirers of the former leader, as well as historians, can glean interesting insights from this volume.
