To N. J. Rockwell [1]

N. J. Rockwell: Springfield, January 21, 1846.

Dear Sir: You perhaps know that General Hardin and I have a contest for the Whig nomination for Congress for this district. He has had a turn and my argument is ``Turn about is fair play.'' I shall be pleased if this strikes you as a sufficient argument. Yours truly, A. LINCOLN.
