There Was No Need of a Story.

Dr. Hovey, of Dansville, New York, thought he would call and see the President.

Upon arriving at the White House he found the President on horseback, ready for a start.

Approaching him, he said:

"President Lincoln, I thought I would call and see you before leaving the city, and hear you tell a story."

"From Western New York."

"Well, that’s a good enough country without stories," replied the President, and off he rode.
