Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.
W M Morris Esq Springfield March 28. 1859.

Dear Sir, Your kind note inviting me to deliver a lecture at Galesburg, is received. I regret to say I can not do so now; I must stick to the courts awhile. I read a sort of lecture to three different audiences during the last month and this; [2] but I did so under circumstances which made it a waste of no time whatever. Yours very truly, A. LINCOLN.
