Dear Sir Yours of the 1st. closing with my proposition for compromise, was duly received. I will be on hand; and in due time, will notify you of the exact day. I believe, after all, I shall make a political speech of it. You have no objection?

I would like to know, in advance, whether I am also to speak, or lecture, in New-York.

Very---very---glad your election went right. Yours truly,

A. LINCOLN

P.S. I am here at court, but my address is still at Springfield, Ills. A. L.
