Illinois State Journal, January 11, 1859. Lincoln's name appears as one of fifty-two signers, omitted for reasons of space. Mrs. Mozart's letter of January 10 acceding to the request to give another performance before returning to New York, is also printed in the Journal. Her first concert scheduled for January 6, was postponed because of inclement weather until Saturday, January 8, and in response to the above letter she sang again on the night of Tuesday, January 11 at Cook's Hall.
