En route from Terre Haute, IN to Indianapolis, IN.

In stage with Lincoln are Abram Hammond, later county judge and governor of Indiana, and Thomas H. Nelson. Not knowing Lincoln, they have much merriment, as they think, at his expense. Arriving Indianapolis at night, they stop at Browning's Hotel, where Lincoln, to their surprise, is greeted by John McLean, Judge E. Hannigan, A. S. White, and R. W. Thompson. Herndon & Weik, 244-46.
