ALS, CSmH. This letter and the one to John D. Johnston (infra) are parts of the same document, the letter to Johnston beginning on the bottom of the letter to Thomas Lincoln.Page 17
 Johnston had written the letter for Thomas Lincoln and followed it with a letter of his own on the same sheet. Due to the fact that Nicolay and Hay (II, 144-46) printed the letter to Johnston under the erroneous date of January [2?] 1851, Beveridge (I, 479) states erroneously that Lincoln ``ignored'' Johnston's request for money.
