From the April 1930 issue of The Christian Science Journal

ABRAHAM LINCOLN exemplified his belief that only kindness is worth while; for charity and forgiveness were the underlying persuasions of his every act. His beautiful life embodied kindness, even though he did not always meet with kindness in return; and it was his benevolence of thought, his humanity, his loving sense of justice, and his determined and consistent adherence to these qualities, which brought about the abolition of one form of slavery from our land.
