"I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom."
Abraham Lincoln in a letter to
Mrs. Bixby of Boston, who lost
five sons killed in battle. Nov. 21, 1864.
