Springfield, IL.

Lincoln writes to W. B. Preston, secretary of the navy, that most government advertising in Illinois goes to Democratic papers. Taylor will probably "not go the doctrine of removals very strongly," but when job is not already in Democratic hands it should be given to Whig. "And if still less than this is done for our friends, I think they will have just cause to complain." Abraham Lincoln to William B. Preston, 20 April 1849, CW, 2:42-43.
