To Albert G. Hodges 
Frankfort, Ky. Washington, Oct. 28, 1864
Mrs. Margaret C. Price, is here asking that her son, Philemon B. Price, now a prisoner of war at Camp Chase, may be discharged, and I have told [her] I will do it if you say so. What say you?
 ALS, DNA WR RG 107, Presidential Telegrams, I, 213. Hodges telegraphed Lincoln in reply on October 29, but the telegram has not been found. In a post-script to his letter of November 1, however, Hodges commented: ``I do not know young Price, whom you telegraphed me about. He grew from childhood to manhood in this community without my having any recollection of him. I could not, from inquiries made of his antecedents, recommended him, unconditionally, to executive clemency, and hence the form of the dispatch sent you Oct. 29th.'' (DLC-RTL).
