Lincoln replies to Browning's letter: "As you anticipate, I had already recommended Judge Logan . . .; and more, I had already said all I could consistently with this, in favor of Judge Lockwood. I certainly esteem Mr. Bushnell as being every way worthy of such an office. In moral character, and legal attainments, he is entirely sound and sufficient. If you think this letter can be used to any advantage, you are at liberty to so use it." Abraham Lincoln to Orville H. Browning, 29 January 1850, CW, 2:72.
