Clinton, IL.

"The old familiar face of A. Lincoln is again amongst us," writes Clinton reporter, "and we cannot help noticing the peculiarly friendly expression with which he greets everybody, and everybody greets him. He comes back to us after electrifying Ohio, with all his blushing honors thick upon him; yet the poorest and plainest amongst our people, fears not to approach, and never fails to receive a hearty welcome from him." Central Transcript, 6 October 1859.
