                                                                      For Aunty Sojourner Truth
                                                                      October the 29th, 1864
                                                                           -- A. Lincoln


In portraiture Sojourner reclines,
Lincoln above. The "Book of Life" open.


Six months later, our President dead


In truth, Lincoln's seated at his desk when Sojourner
Arrives. He stands and bows upon introduction.


He says: All presidents would have emancipated
               those brought in bondage if the time had come,
               and if those on the other side of the river
               had not done evil, he wouldn't have had
               the opportunity to do good.

An instrument of God


Both hands receiving, one his one hers


Call again Sojourner, my friend
