Some Portion of the Burden



"When the Lincolns left Springfield for Washington in February 1860, they left the family dog “Fido” with a neighboring Springfield family. Fido outlived President Lincoln but came to a similarly tragic end – being stabbed to death by a drunk. In the White House, Jip took Fido’s place. Nurse Rebecca Pomroy reported that “his little dog, Jip, helped relieve Lincoln of ‘some portion of the burden, for the little fellow was never absent from the Presidential lunch. He was always in Mr. Lincoln’s lap to claim his portion first, and was caressed and petted by him through the whole meal.”

A Thousand Stars - Sing Send

Lincoln had within his brain the grandest truths, and he held them as unconsciously, as easily, as naturally, as a waveless pool holds within its stainless breast a thousand stars.

By Robert Ingersoll (Abraham Lincoln)
