I am not personally acquainted with Dr. L. J. Czapkay, of whom the letter on the other half of this sheet is written; but the writer is one of our United States Senators, of high standing, whom I cheerfully indorse; and I add that I hope Dr. Czapkay may have a pleasant sojourn in Europe and may find all reasonable facilities for effecting the objects of his visit. A. LINCOLN
