This is an example of intertextuality between the narrative and the repeated references to Abraham Lincoln. Arthur Jarvis clearly revered Abraham Lincoln. It would seem that the writings of Abraham Lincoln inspired Young Arthur to undo or atone for the injustices done to blacks in South Africa. In his Second Inaugural Address, Lincoln uses allusion to the Bible to support his reasons for engaging in Civil War to abolish slavery. Jarvis Sr. is delighted to learn his son had such inspiration and noble aspirations. There is a sense that he died working for a cause that was noble and just.
