Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln. Volume 8.
Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.
Hon. Sec. of State Executive Mansion,
My dear Sir. Washington, March 6. 1865.

I have some wish that Thomas D. Jones, of Cincinnati, and John J. Piatt, now in this city, should have some of those moderate sized consulates which facilitate artists a little [in] their profession. Please watch for chances. Yours truly A. LINCOLN
