1922. Genius is often defined with complacent assurance as the ability and disposition to do hard work. That is frequently the truth; but it is not always the truth. Abraham Lincoln did much of the many kinds of hard work, but that does not account for his genius. Can he be successfully imitated? Why did his laugh vibrate so far, and why was his humor so inimitable? Contents: when Lincoln was laughed at; President and pilgrim; Lincoln reads Artemus Ward aloud; some Lincoln anecdotes; what made him laugh; humor in the political situation; why Lincoln loved laughter; Lincoln and John Brown.
