My Dear Sir: 3d February, 1865.
I have received at your hands a very fine specimen of the Mackinaw Salmon Trout and I beg that you will convey to Mr. Williams my cordial thanks for his kind thoughtfulness; and accept my acknowledgments for your courtesy in the transmission of his present. I am, sir, very truly yours A. LINCOLN.
Hon. J. F. Driggs &c &c
