SERVICE AND THRIFT
INDUSTRY AND THRIFT by ABRAHAM LINCOLN

in the same difficulty again. Now this can only happen by some defect in your conduct. What that defect is I think I know. You are not lazy, and still you are an idler.
You are now in need of some money; and what I propose is that you go to work "tooth and nail" for somebody who will give you money for it. Let father and the boys take charge of things at home, prepare for a crop, and make the crop; and you go to work for the best money wagesor in discharge of any debt-that you can get; and to secure you a fair reward for your labor, I now promise you that for every dollar you will, between this and the first of next May, get for your own labor, either as money or as discharging your own indebtedness, I will give you one other dollar. By this, if you hire yourself at ten dollars a month, from me you will get ten more, makirig twenty dollars a month for your work. In this I do not mean you should go off to St. Louis, or the lead mines, or the gold mines of California, but I mean for you to get at it for the best wages you can get close to home, in Coles County.
You say you would almost give your place in heaven for seventy or eighty dollars. Then you value your place in heaven very cheap, for I am sure you can, with the offer I make, get the seventy or eighty dollars for four or five months' work. You say if I will furnish you the money ,you will deed me the land, and if you don't pay the money, back you will deliver possession. Nonsense. If you can't now live with the land, how will you then live without it? You have always been kind to me, and I do not mean to be unkind to you. On the contrary, if you will but follow ao my advice, you will find it worth more than eighty times eighty dollars to you.
