To Daniel A. Cheever 
My dear Sir. July 25- 1858
On reaching home last evening I found yours of the 20th. It is my purpose to visit Tazewell before long; but I can not yet tell when. When I can determine, I will write you again. In the mean time let the friends be fixing things up as well as they can. Yours very truly A. LINCOLNPage 523
