Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

To Jesse W. Fell [1]

Friend Fell. Washington March 1, 1848

Your kind letter of the 7th. Feb: enclosing a petition for peace, was received a day or two ago. I shall present it at the proper time.

It now seems to be understood on all hands that the war is over---that the treaty sent in will be ratified.

Page  455I will try to get the time to write you a longer letter soon; but I am really too much hurried to do so now. Yours as ever,

J. W. Fell A. LINCOLN.

Payson Ills.
