To Isachar Zacharie [1]

Dr. Zacharie Executive Mansion,
Dear Sir Washington, Sep. 19, 1864.

I thank you again for the deep interest you have constantly taken in the Union cause. The personal matter on behalf of your friend, which you mention, shall be fully and fairly considered when presented. Yours truly A. LINCOLN.


[1]   ALS, RPB. ADfS, DLC-RTL. Zacharie wrote Lincoln on September 21, 1864:

``Yours of the 19th came duly to hand. It has had the desiered effect, with the friends of the parties.

``I leave tomorrow for the interior of Pennsylvania. May go as far as Ohio. One thing is to be done. And that is for you to impress on the minds of your friends for them not to be so sure.'' (DLC-RTL). No satisfactory clues have been discovered to this cryptic letter.
