Hamburg, May 2, 1865.
At a meeting of American citizens held this day in Hamburg, it was
Resolved, That whereas our Almighty Father has permitted to be removed from us our beloved President, Abraham Lincoln, we afflicted citizens, at this time distant from our country, desire to place on record the overwhelming grief which this sad event inspires. God in his mercy permitted him to live long enough to impress upon us a deep and everlasting affection for his virtues, and in our hearts he can never die. His memory will remain to us, and he will share with the “father of our country” the honored place of being first in the hearts of his countrymen.
Resolved, That our chairman, Hon. James R. McDonald, vice-consul of the United States in this city, send a copy of this resolution, with our heartfelt condolence, to Mrs. Lincoln and the Secretary of State.
