    Excerpt from Abraham Lincoln: Plough-Boy, Statesman, Patriot

    In 1789, George Washington, to whose military skill, patience, wisdom, and unselfish patriotism the new nation owed so 'much, was elected the first President of the infant Republic. Large in area it Was even then, but small in population: When the first census was taken in 1790, the whole country contained only four million in habitants, of Whom about half a million were negro slaves.

    In those. Early days of American history the people clung to the sea, which was almost their only highway of commerce. Railways had not then been invented, and good roads did not exist, therefore they could only carry on their business by water. Inland the population was scanty, and there were no towns of any size. The people dwelt in rude cabins, and there was an absence of many of the conveniences of civilised life.

    The settlements ended at the Alleghany Moun tains, and the wilderness began. All the wide region west of these mountains was overrun by hostile savages and wild beasts, except the little pioneer settlements in Kentucky and Tennessee, in which are laid the opening scenes in our story. The western boundary of the United States was not, as now, the Pacific Ocean, but the great Mississippi river, which then ¿owed through unbroken forests and virgin prairies on its way to the Gulf of Mexico.
