Vanity Fair
September 22, 1860
My friends, there is no patriotic duty on earth more gratifying to my feelings than to make a speech over Mr. Lincoln's political grave. [Loud cheers.] I do not make this remark out of any unkindness to Mr. Lincoln, but I believe that the good of his own country requires it.”—Douglas's Speech, Wednesday, September 12th, 1860.
