"Mr. Lincoln was here a moment ago," Herndon writes Trumbull, "and told me that he had just seen Col. Dougherty. . . . He told Lincoln that the National Democracy intended to run in every county and district, a National Democrat for each and every office. Lincoln replied, 'If you do this the thing is settled.' . . . Lincoln is very certain as to Miller's and Bateman's election . . . but is gloomy and rather uncertain about his own success." Horace White, The Life of Lyman Trumbull (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1913), 89.
