I have not permitted myself, gentlemen, to conclude that I am
the best man in the country; but I am reminded, in this connection,
of a story of an old Dutch farmer who remarked to a companion
once that "it was not best to swap horses while crossing streams."

(Reply to Delegation from the National Union League, June 9, 1864)
