Ellie Ray Ringle from Turnblatt Ridge Tennessee writes……Dear Hugh: I’ve been reading about some of the guys that started the United States back in the 1700′s….They were quoted as saying various things. I suppose thats because they said quite a bit during their lives. But specifically what did Abraham Lincoln say right before signing the Declaration of Independence in 1860?


From Hughy


Well, this is not widely known and is very seldom addressed in any way……but , it just so happens that I am up on this situation.


Abe said two things………..The first was….”Elmo, can I borrow your pen”?………………….after which he said “Im sorry Im so long getting to this….Im about 87 years late.”


Once again, YOUAREWELCOME. We hear at H.A.S. are just glad to help.
