Text of a radio address delivered by Governor William Langer on KFYR on the occasion of Abraham Lincoln's birthday, February 11, 1938. The Governor notes that Lincoln was "the greatest spirit that ever gave itself in behalf of mankind." Langer notes that Lincoln was "a child of the common people," not unlike those North Dakotans listening to the speech. He firmly links the cause of the Nonpartisan League with the historical memory of the former President.
