I've been looking for another of Lincoln's quotes to Douglass, in which Lincoln said that while he thought slavery to be an abomination, he did not think the two races should live together.  Something to the effect that the prescence of either race would be detrimental to the other.  Lincoln favored colonization of the freed people.  Mind-boggling - what if he had lived and carried out such an agenda? 

Woops, I think if anyone wants to respond to that, it had better be as the start of a new thread.
