Friend White Springfield, Feb. 13. 1860.

Your kind note, inclosing the letter of Mr. Billinghurst is just received. It so happens that I am engaged to be at Brooklyn, [2] on the evening of the 27th. so that, of course, I can not be in Wisconsin, on the 28th. and I have so written Mr. B. [3]

Thank you for your anticipations of the future for me, as well as for your many past kindnesses. Your friend as ever

A. LINCOLN
