Lacon, IL.

Whig Party congressional candidate Lincoln campaigns in Lacon, Illinois, where he speaks about the tariff issue, "the Mexican war, [and the] annexation of Texas." A newspaper reports, "Mr. Lincoln is one of the strongest men of our State—possessing a well disciplined, clear and comprehensive mind—a mind able to grasp any subject within the range of the statesman. Of his election we have no doubt; in the event of which his constituents of all parties may safely repose confidence in his ability, and fidelity to their interests." Illinois Gazette (Lacon), 25 July 1846, 2:5.
