Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.
Fernando Jones, Esq Springfield,
My dear Sir: Jany. 15. 1860

Yours of the 10th. was received two or three days ago; and, being much engaged, I have postponed attending to it until now. Our republican friend, J. W. Fell, of Bloomington, Illinois, can furnish you the materials for a brief sketch of my history, if it be desired.

I shall be happy to receive a letter from you at any time. Yours truly A. LINCOLN
