November 8, 1864: John Henry Brown’s Journal

John Henry Brown was a painter of portrait miniatures, living and working in Philadelphia. He had met Lincoln in August of 1860 when he was commissioned to paint Lincoln’s portrait for a supporter, but although Brown liked Lincoln personally, he did not agree with Republican policies.



General election day for President& vice President of the United States. The candidates—Republican Abm. Lincoln, the present incumbent Andrew Johnston [sic] for Vice President. Democrats Geo. B. McClennan [sic] for President & Geo W. Pendleton for Vice President. The great anxiety I feel about my new business & the course of many leading democrats has made me very indifferent about the election
