TO THE PEOPLE OF SANGAMON COUNTY.

FELLOW CITIZENS:---We, a portion of the Sangamon delegation learning that great disatisfaction prevails among you, relative toPage  149 the New Revenue Law, ask the favor of you, to attend a public discussion of the merits and demerits of that measure, on SATURDAY the 13th APRIL. inst., at Springfield. We invite every man in the County, who opposes the Revenue Law, to come armed with all the arguments against it that he can, and we confidently believe, we will be able to show, that none of them are well founded.

A. LINCOLN, A. G. HERNDON.

A. McCORMIC[K], J. CALHOUN.

N. W. EDWARDS.

P.S. We doubt not that the remainder of the delegation will concur with us in this call; but have not had the opportunity of seeing them since we concluded to make it. April 5, 1839.
