Springfield, IL.

"I am glad I made the late race," Lincoln writes to his old friend A. G. Henry. "It gave me a hearing on the great and durable question of the age, which I could have had in no other way; and though I now sink out of view, and shall be forgotten, I believe I have made some marks which will tell for the cause of civil liberty long after I am gone." To Henry Asbury, E. A. Paine, and Anson Miller, political supporters, he writes encouragement. Abraham Lincoln to Anson G.
