I recall that Everett sent a to Lincoln soon after the dedication in which he said he wished his speech would be remembered as long as Lincoln's. This had to happen before January 15, 1865 as that was when Everett passed away. Which means that at least someone never had to re-examine the speech after Lincoln's death but had a clue at the time it was made as to it's lasting impression.
