To John M. Read [1]

Hon. John M. Read Springfield Ill
Dear Sir--- Oct 13th 1860.

The box containing the two framed engravings, sent me by yourself, came safely to hand. Please to accept my thanks for the same.

We are indulging in much rejoicing over the late splendid victories in Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Ohio, which seem to foreshadow the certain success of the Republican cause in November.

Yours Truly A. LINCOLN
