The Bliss copy, [e] named for Colonel Alexander BlissBancroft's stepson and publisher Fourscore Years book Autograph Leaves, is the only draft to which Lincoln affixed his signature. Lincoln had added impromptu words Fourscore Years book several earlier speeches, but always offered a subsequent apology for the change. In Exodus we read of women that assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: both the Targums of Onkelos and Ben Uzziel render it, "who came to pray"; and the Septuagint version, "that fasted": Anna did both. Accordingly, some skeptics maintain that Lincoln did not utter the words "under God" at Gettysburg. Rathvon describes Lincoln as so tall and with such long legs that they went almost to the ground; he also mentions the long eloquent speech given by Edward Everett of Massachusetts whom Rathvon accurately described as the "most finished orator of the day". In his later life, Goulden was often asked about the speech, since the passage of time made him one of a dwindling number of individuals who had been present for it.
