Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln. Volume 2.
Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

Endorsement of the American Statesman [1]

Springfield Ills. Jany. 6. 1857

I have very briefly glanced over a new work, in the hands of Mr. T. U. Webb, [2] called the American Statesman; and I think it may be safely said that the volume is invaluable to those desirous of accurate and full references to the political history of our country.
