ALS, DNA WR RG 107, Presidential Telegrams, I, 240-42. The names of the governors to whom the telegram was sent are listed on two separate telegraph blanks (241-42), not in LINCOLN's autograph. The telegrams from the governors in reply (DLC-RTL) were utilized by LINCOLN in compiling his tabulation of votes (December 1, infra), which furnished the basis for his analysis of the election in his annual message to congress on December 6. See also LINCOLN's second telegram to Stone and others, November 29, infra.
 Clerk's error for Major General Frederick Steele.
