Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

To Robert S. Boal [1]

Dr. R. Boal. Springfield,
My dear Sir: Sept. 14. 1856

Yours of the 8th. inviting me to be with [you] at Lacon on the 30th. Inst. is received. I feel that I owe you, and our friends of Marshall, a good deal; and I will come if I can; and if I do not get there, it will be because I shall think my efforts are more needed further South.

Present my respects to Mrs. Boal, and believe [me], as ever Your friend A. LINCOLN
