In the third paragraph, offense is written "offence." Should this be marked [sic]? -- ASchmitz on WP.


There is also no closing punctuation at the end of the third paragraph. If this is the way it was recorded, I think it should also be marked as such. -- 204.128.70.65 14:48, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Error in chosen source; word should be "His" (capitalized), not "his"[edit]

In the sentence "Both read the same Bible, and pray to the same God; and each invokes his aid against the other.", you will find that the word is actually "His" (capitalized) -- not "his" -- in Lincoln's own handwritten text (https://www.loc.gov/resource/msspin.pin2202/?sp=3) and also in https://web.archive.org/web/20160303165843/http://avalon.law.yale.edu/19th_century/lincoln2.asp . The lowercase "his" is clearly incorrect.
