1907 Excerpt: ...in my boat, the passengers seated themselves on
them, and I sculled them out to the steamer. They got on board, and
I lifted the trunks and put them on the deck. The steamer was about
to put on steam again, when I called out, 'You have forgotten to
pay me.' Each of them took from his pocket a silver half-dollar and
threw it on the bottom of my boat. I could scarcely believe my eyes
as I picked up the money. You may think it was a very little thing,
and in these days it seems to me like a trifle, but it was a most
important incident in my life. I could scarcely credit that I, the
poor boy, had earned a dollar in less than a day; that by honest
work I had earned a dollar. The world seemed wider and fairer
before me. I was a more hopeful and thoughtful boy from that time."

Markham wrote when he wished briefly to indicate what was needed in
public life. The example of Lincoln enforces such an ideal: How do
we need to keep the nation whole, To guard the pillars of the
state? We need The fine audacities of honest deed; The homely old
integrities of soul; The swift temerities that take the part Of
outcast right--the wisdom of the heart; Brave hopes that Mammon
never can detain, Nor sully with his gainless clutch for gain.
