Example text

Something should be said of his schooling and study during his boyhood years. His own testimony that he went to school “by littles” which in “the aggregate did not amount to one year” has been accepted by some as a statement indicating relatively slight acquisition of knowledge or skill. Actually, this means that Lincoln attended school for several years, short terms of two or three months being the general rule, and many school terms averaging less.
