I am here, Abraham Lincoln.

You channeled me correctly; I did mean to say “hick” expressions. Of course, I also spoke with my regional accent, which included these expressions.

I tried to distance myself from this way of speaking, but it naturally came out anyway. I sought to present myself not as a backwoodsman, but certain ways of talking persisted.

What I am saying is that try as I might, I could not communicate in daily talk in the way expected of the author of the Gettysburg Address.
