Lincoln asks C. H. Ray of Chicago Tribune to send him two copies of papers containing reports of debates—he wants to preserve them in scrap book. "I believe, according to a letter of yours to Hatch you are 'feeling like h-ll yet.' Quit that. You will soon feel better. Another 'blow-up' is coming; and we shall have fun again." "The fight must go on," he tells M. M. Inman. With O. M. Hatch and Jesse K. Dubois, he signs letter to Newton Bateman, elected superintendent of education November 2, 1858, requesting help in paying off party debt. Abraham Lincoln to Charles H.
