Memorandum [1]

[c. November 4, 1864]

For the Message

Mrs. Hutter suggests that there be four Assylums in each State, aid by the General Government, for the orphans & perhaps the other destitute of the war.

Annotation

[1]   AD, DLC-RTL. Since Mrs. Elizabeth E. Hutter called on Lincoln on November 4 (see Lincoln to Stanton, infra), this undated memorandum has been assigned this date. Lincoln made no use of her suggestion in his annual message of December 6, infra.
