Nicolay also regarded Mr. Lincoln highly. He was always gentle and never severe, always anxious to praise and never to blame, always eager to reward and slow to punish. The burdens of his job weighed heavily on Nicolay.
It seems as if the circumstances surrounding my position were getting worse day by day. I am beginning seriously to doubt my ability to endure it a great while longer…. This feeling does not result from any talk with the President about the matter, although I have once or twice alluded to the subject in our conversation, but from other causes and considerations.
I think he does not now wish to be troubled with the question in any way, and therefore I do not repeat it to him. After his inauguration, however, other changes will necessarily take place, and after which I will probably be able to determine my own course. Nicolay frequently took either vacations or trips on behalf of President Lincoln.

No cover image. Read preview. Synopsis From the time of Lincoln's nomination for the presidency until his assassination, John G. Nicolay served as the Civil War president's chief personal secretary. Nicolay became an intimate of Lincoln and probably knew him as well as anyone outside his own family.
Unlike John Hay, his subordinate, Nicolay kept no diary, but he did write several memoranda recording his chief's conversation that shed direct light on Lincoln.
