Of this fragment John Hay wrote, "It was not written to be seen of men. It was penned in the awful sincerity of a perfectly honest soul trying to bring himself into closer communion with its Maker."

Do you feel John Hay was also part of the "grand deception" that Lincoln was faking a belief in God for "public consumption?"
