Handwritten notes by Woodrow Wilson on the life of Abraham Lincoln.
Gilder Lehrman Collection, New York Historical Society, New York
The life of Mr. Lincoln affords the best example I know of of how the fine fibre of manhood and the mysterious fire of genius mature, even in the most humbly born, in a free nation. He was the sort of great man that makes proof of our institutions.
