Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln. Volume 2.
Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.
J. T. Eccles, Esq Springfield,
My dear Sir Aug. 2. 1858

I should be at your town to-day with Judge Douglas, had he not strongly intimated in his letter, which you have seen in the newspapers, that my presence, on the days or evenings of his meetings would be considered an intrusion. Before long I shall publish a string of appointments following upon his present track, which will bring me to Hillsborough about the 9th. of September. Yours truly A. LINCOLN
