Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.
To John D. Johnston 
Springfield, August 31, 1851.
Dear Brother: Inclosed is the deed for the land.  We are all well, and have nothing in the way of news. We have had no cholera here for about two weeks. Give my love to all, and especially to mother.
Yours as ever, A. LINCOLN.
