To Robert Moseley 
My dear Sir: July 2. 1858
Your letter of the 29th. is received, and for which I thank you. Herewith I send a little article which I wish you would have published in the ``Pra[i]rie Beacon'' next week.  Besides my own recollection, I have carefully examined the Journals since I saw you; and I know the editor will be entirely safe in publishing the article. Get it into the first paper. Yours very truly A. LINCOLN---
 ALS, IHi. Robert Moseley, whose name Lincoln misspells, was a Republican politician elected state representative from Edgar County in 1858.
 The Prairie Beacon, edited by Jacob Harding, was published at Paris, Illinois. Files of the Beacon have been searched for the article sent by Lincoln, without success.
