    DEDICATED
    TO THE
    MEMORY OF
    ABRAHAM LINCOLN

    America’s noblest sons are weeping
    Her daughters they are bathed in tears;
    Abraham the Great has fallen---in
    Nature’s sleep, the sleep of years.
    Now he’s gone, we’ll not recall him
    From a paradise of bliss----
    Where he pleads the cause of Freedom
    To a changing world like this.

    Entered to Act of Congress in the year 1865 by James Logan, in the Clerk’s Office of the District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
