To Horace Greeley [1]

Hon: H. Greely. Springfield, Ills.
Dear Sir Novr. 8. 1858

This will introduce our mutual friend John G. Nicolay, who resides here. He wishes an arrangement to correspond for your paper. He is entirely trust-worthy; and, so far as I am capable of judging, altogether competent for such a situation. I hope you will conceive it your interest to engage him. Yours truly

A. LINCOLN.
