A little high, but nothing that seems that seems awkward in comparison to his appearance. You can see his speeches on Youtube, he had a great sense of humor.

I do agree that by looking at his picture one would expect a booming bass, something which this example obviously can't be described as.

We cannot rule out that he may have deliberately lowered his voice for the recording, and especially since it is obviously directed at English speakers and that even the average German wouldn't have recognised his voice considering the lack of radios and the limited audience of his appearances, most people wouldn't have known he did it.

Google "Lincoln gay" or whatever. Plenty of sites who think that is a good thing and want to claim him.

There's a Wikipedia on the Lincoln gay thesis and so on. Plus his haliographic biographer talking about his streaks on lavender and so on. Not something you can prove or disprove at this point. He is listed number 2 with Buchanan number 1 on Presidents who might have been gay.

I don't find it squeaky but F. Scott Fitzgerald he is not. There is something unusual about it. Not a lisp but some sort of impediment
Patton Speech - YouTube

* he did practice pouting in the mirror so his grimace always makes me laugh

Wow, I never would have expected. He doesn't sound the least bit like George C. Scott.

He sounds pretty normal to my old ears but his manner, including facial expression, is reminiscent of a 15 year old boy giving a school speech.
