The news of Lee's surrender to General Grant on Sunday, April 9,
1865, caused great rejoicing through the country. On Monday evening
a large crowd gathered about the White House in Washington to con-
gratulate Mr. Lincoln and to ask for a speech. He told them that if
they would come back the next evening he would be ready to say
something to them, but that he wanted to be particular what he said
was right, for everything got into print and he wanted to be careful
not to make mistakes. The next evening, Tuesday, April 11, an im-
mense crowd gathered, and it was then that the remarks here quoted
were made.
