Frank Leslie's Budget of Fun
January 01, 1861
Miss Columbia
Good gracious, Abraham Lincoln! how did you manage to get the situation of overseer of my farm?”
Old Abe
Why, you see, Miss Columby, it was a sort of a free fight among the other fellows, and so while they were busy wrangling the boys kinder put me right through.”
Miss Columbia
Oh, Abe, how could they—and things so mixed up as they are? Well (she sighs), and what are you going to do?”
Old Abe
Why, Miss Columby, I'm going to act on the squar, and do what's best for the interests of the hull farm if they'll only give me a chance. I'll take care that our blessed bird loses none its pin feathers.” [text is unclear].
