ORIGIN OF "WITH MALICE TOWARD NONE", ETC.

 

It was during Lincolnís second inauguration as President of the United States that he gave voice to these famous and oft-quoted words:

"With malice toward none,
With charity for all."

The above occur in the last paragraph in his second inaugural speech, delivered at Washington, D. C., March 4, 1865.
