Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.
Dear Stuart: Springfield, Jany. 21st. 1840.

A bill bringing on the congressional elections in this state, next summer, has passed the House of Representatives this minute. [2] As I think it will also pass the Senate, I take the earliest moment to advise you of it. I do not think any one of our political friends, wishes to push you off the track.

Anticipating the introduction of this bill, I wrote you, for your feelings on the subject, several weeks since; but have received no answer. It may be, that my letter miscarried; if so, will you, on the receipt of this, write me what you think and feel about the matter.

Nothing new, except I believe I have got our Truett [3] debt secured. I have Truetts note at twelve months, with his brother Myers as surety. Your friend, as ever---
