Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.
Friend McNamar: November [9?], 1843

You see the object of the above letter. As it speaks of the Tax of 1842. I had supposed the land was already sold, but, so far as the Returns in the Auditors Office shows, it has not. It may be that James meant the year 1843. I wish you would examine; and if the taxes have been paid up to this year, apply the enclosed money, or enough of it, to the payment of the tax of this year & send me the receipt by mail.

Write the condition in which it stands at any rate. Yours as ever

A. LINCOLN
