SERVICE AND THRIFT
INDUSTRY AND THRIFT by ABRAHAM LINCOLN

NOTES AND QUESTIONS
Biography. Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), the sixteenth President of the United States, was born on a farm near Hodgensville, Kentucky. When he was seven, the Lincoln family moved to Indiana, and in 1830, to Illinois. Lincoln's boyhood was full of hardships and privation. He was able to attend school only a few months altogether, but he had a small number of good books, which he read again and again. By hard struggles he educated himself, became a lawyer, a member of Congress, and in 1860 was elected President of the United States. He was assassinated by an actor named Booth, April 14, 1865. There are many memorials to Lincoln: the farm where he was born was presented to the nation, in 1916; the Abraham Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D. C., stands in Potomac Park, near the shore of the Potomac River; there is a beautiful monument in Springfield, Illinois, where he is buried; a national highway crossing the continent from east to west has been named the Lincoln Highway; one of the most famous statues of Lincoln is the one made by Saint Gaudens, which stands in Lincoln Park, Chicago. Lincoln was famous as a story-teller, and his shrewd commonsense is well illustrated in this letter.
Discussion. 1. How did Lincoln regard the letter from Johnston (his half-brother), requesting eighty dollars? 2. What reason did Lincoln suggest for Johnston's continued difficulty? 3. What valuable advice did he give him? 4. What proposition was made if this advice was heeded? 5. Do you think it was a good way to develop thrift in Johnston? 6. What plan for developing thrift in its citizens did our government originate during the World War? 7. Find in the Glossary the meaning of: comply; idler; discharging; deed. 8. Pronounce: request; indebtedness; contrary.
