Salmon P. Chase: [Discussing Lincoln] I feel it's unfortunately true that his habit of continually joking has deeply affected his image with the people. Mr. Cooke, I can't tell you how exasperating it is when I am trying to focus discussion on some serious national problem to have the president interrupt with some grotesque story! It's no wonder the people have lost respect for him.
