Springfield, IL.

Lincoln attends church, where J. Henry Brown sees him. "I hardly know how to express the strength of my personal regard for Mr. Lincoln," writes Brown. "I never saw a man for whom I so soon formed an attachment. I like him much, and agree with him in all things but his politics. He is kind and very sociable; immensely popular among the people of Springfield. . . . There are so many hard lines in his face that it becomes a mask of the inner man. His true character only shines out when in an animated conversation, or when telling an amusing tale, of which he is very fond. He is said to be a homely man; I do not think so."
