Springfield, IL.

Lincoln writes to his law partner Congressman John T. Stuart regarding the appointment of a postmaster for Springfield, Illinois. Lincoln recommends Dr. Anson G. Henry, in part, out of his desire to keep Henry in Springfield. Lincoln writes, "I have, within the last few days, been making a most discreditable exhibition of myself in the way of hypochondriaism and thereby got an impression that Dr. Henry is necessary to my existence." Lincoln apologizes for not "writing more; I have not sufficient composure to write a long letter." Abraham Lincoln to John T. Stuart, 20 January 1841, CW, 1:228-29.
