Dear Sir. July 19. 1857
Mr. Herndon received yours of the 14th. addressed to him and me, and kept it for me to answer when I should return, which was only yesterday.
We are willing to be with you in the case or cases of Alies & Morrison,  subject to the condition, however, that I shall have toPage 412 be at Chicago during part---perhaps all---of your next term. Mr. Herndon will be on hand; and if this will do, send on the full statement of facts. Yours truly A. LINCOLN---
