第 128 頁 - Who touches a hair of yon gray head Dies like a dog! March on!" he said. All day long through Frederick street Sounded the tread of marching feet: All day long that free flag tost Over the heads of the rebel host.
第 140 頁 - My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or destroy slavery.
第 88 頁 - Your dispatches, complaining that you are not properly sustained, while they do not offend me, do pain me very much. " Blenker's division was withdrawn from you before you left here ; and you know the pressure under which I did it, and, as I thought, acquiesced in it— certainly not without reluctance.

I propose to fight it out on this line, if it takes all summer.
第 140 頁 - If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it; if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it; and if I could do it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that.
第 101 頁 - In addition to what I have already said, I only wish to say to the President that I think he is wrong in regarding me as ungenerous when I said that my force was too weak.
第 141 頁 - Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union. I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause.
