Lincoln himself liked to tell the story about two Quakeresses who had a spirited discussion concerning himself Jefferson Davis.
"I think Mr. Jefferson will win this war," declared the first one.
"Why does thee think so?"
"Because Jefferson is a praying man."
"And so is Abraham praying man."
"That's true," answered the first. "But the Lord will think Abraham is joking."
