During the Civil War in America an officer didn`t understand an order. "I believe I`ll sit down,” said Secretary Stanton, "and write to him what I think of him”.
"Do so,” said Lincoln, "write him what you have it on yur mind. Give it to him.” Stanton didn`t need a second invitation. It was a bone crushed that he read to the president.
"That`s right,” said Lincoln. "That`s a good letter.”
"Who can I send it by?” asked the secretary.
"Send it?” answered Lincoln. "Why, don`t send it ay all! Tear it up. You have freed your mind on the subject, and that is all the necessary. You must never send such letters. I never do.”
