To William Thomas [1]

[c. January 28, 1848]

Not perceiving that these letters can aid me any in your business, and thinking possibly the Solicitors letter to you may miscarry, andPage  446 not seeing how I can do any thing till a further hearing from you, I enclose them to you. Yours as ever A. LINCOLN

Hon. Wm. Thomas.
