Excerpt from The Real Life of Abraham Lincoln: A Talk With Mr. Herndon, His Late Law Partner

He has given me permission to write what I choose of himself and his dead friend, and among all the men I have ever met he is the readiest to understand a question and to give even and direct answers. He resembles Mr. Lincoln so much, and in his present quarters, garb, and worldly condition, is so nearly a reproduction of A. Lincoln, law yer, as he lived before Fame drove a chariot through this second story, that we may as well take a turn around the surviving man and the room.

Lincoln was the taller and older, and the senior partner; he had been in two or three associations with lawyers one of his early partners, by fraud or mismanagement, got him into debt, and he car ried the burden of it about ten years; his latest partner, excepting Herndon, was anxious to be a candidate for the Legislature, and as Mr. Lincoln desired the same honor at the same time, a dissolution was inevitable, and then to'herndon's great surprise, for he was very young and obscure, Lincoln said: Billy, let us go into business to gether. Herndon accepted the proposition thankfully. Mr. Lincoln arranged the terms of partnership, and the new shingle went up directly, never to be removed till the bullet of Booth had done its errand.

How young Herndon might have looked twenty-five years ago We can scarcely infer from the saffron-faced, blue-black haired man before us, bearded bushily at the throat, disposed to shut one eye for accuracy in conversation, his teeth discolored by tobacco, and over his angular features, which suggest Mr. Lincoln's in ampleness and shape, the same half-tender melancholy, the result in both cases, perhaps, Of hard frontier work, poor pay, thoughtful abstraction, and a disposition to share the sorrows of mankind.
