Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

To William H. Seward [1]

[November 10, 1864]

I have a despatch from Chicago as follows:

``Arnold, Farnsworth, Washburne, Lovejoy & Norton, republicans elected. 4th. & 7th. Districts in doubt. In 8th. Swett probably defeated. Other five Districts Democrats elected. Ingersoll, Republican candidate at large probably elected, but vote close.''



[1]   ALS, NAuE. Since Seward did not return to Washington until November 10, it seems likely that Lincoln's undated note was written on that day. The telegram from which Lincoln quotes has not been found.
