Yours of the 23rd. ult: is duly received and I have most cheerfully complied with the request you make in relation to Col: Servant.  I have written to Mr. Tyler  saying all for the Col: that I could say for the best man on earth. Baker  will do the same to-day.
About the matter you and I spoke of at our last parting, I can say nothing which would be news to you. My feelings, and those of Baker, on that subject, are precisely the same as when we last saw you; but the question is how to effect any thing. If you see any way that we can do any thing you ought to write us; there is no indelicacy in it. Baker and I were with Webb  at Vermillion, and talked the matter over with him; and he will tell you the particulars of what we thought.
With my best respects to Mrs. Davidson and Mrs. Wilson,  I remain Your friend, as ever A. LINCOLN
