To Abraham Jonas [1]

Hon: A. Jonas Springfield, Feb. 4 1860

My dear Sir: Yours of the 3rd. inquiring how you can get a copy of the debates now being published in Ohio, is received. As you are one of my most valued friends, and have complimented me by the expression of a wish for the book, I propose doing myself the honor of presenting you with one, so soon as I can. By the arrangement our Ohio friends have made with the publishers, I am to have one hundred copies gratis. When I shall receive them I will send you one by Express. I understand they will not be out before March; and I probably shall be absent about that time, so that you must not be disappointed if you do not receive yours before about the middle of that month. Yours very truly A. LINCOLN
