I do not wish to be misunderstood upon this subject of slavery in this country. I suppose it may long exist, and perhaps the best way for it to come to an end peaceably is for it to exist for a length of time.

There we should in every way resist it as a wrong, treating it as a wrong, with the fixed idea that it must and will come to an end. Abraham Lincoln
