Lincoln writes to James F. Joy of Illinois Central Railroad, who has responded to Lincoln's September 14, 1855 draft on company as though he never heard of Lincoln. Joy telegraphed Lincoln on 17th, who received it at railroad depot. "I ran to the Telegraph office and answered briefly, and was near being left by the cars." He recapitulates his railroad services. "The charge I made was very reasonable." Abraham Lincoln to James F. Joy, 19 September 1855, CW, 2:326.
