Springfield, IL.

To Joseph Medill of Chicago "Tribune" Lincoln writes elaborate denial of charge made by Chicago "Times" that he voted against supplies during Mexican War. He also writes A. Campbell of La Salle, asking whether his offer of $500 for political purposes, made in 1856, still holds good. "I see clearly that such a privilege would be more available now than it was then." Lincoln receives $200 draft from James W. Somers, Urbana attorney, which he at once pays to court on judgment awarded June 11, 1858, in Thompson, White, & Pryor v. Wilson & Parks. He reports this to Somers, and writes page on politics.
