Lincoln arrives at about noon, and a cheering crowd accompanies him to the Randolph House, a hotel owned by William Harrison Randolph, a local businessman and a former state legislator. At two o'clock, on the courthouse square, Lincoln speaks before a crowd of more than four thousand people, "who stood there in the mud, and fog, and drizzle through his whole speech."
