After the election of 1864, Lincoln's word had been "a common cause, a common interest, and a common country." The invocation in this last inaugural is based upon the understanding that there is again a common country and that in caring for those who have been in the battle and in the binding up of the wounds, there is to be no distinction between the men of the grey and those of the blue. 鈥淏ut, alas! poor Goltz, just when ready to march, was taken with sudden, violent fever, the fruit probably of overwork; and in that sad flame blazed away his valiant existence in three or four days; gone forever, June 30, 1761, to the regret of Frederick and of many.鈥?67 Then you think I can be trusted out of the doctor's hands? It is no part of my intention to dilate upon the events of the Ashanti war.

No serious collision with the enemy had as yet occurred, but some sharp fighting was obviously imminent.
