The Weems's Washington had been borrowed by Lincoln from a neighbouring farmer.

I have a rule that I don't read books by authors who are friends of mine that I am publishing, because I know it will be nothing but trouble. … I can't tell them I don't like a book, and if I tell them I do like it, they may not believe me. But I like writers. I enjoy being around them."school ch的发音
