To Joseph Holt 
Come at 7, this evening.
 AE, DLC. Lincoln's endorsement appears on the back of Joseph Holt's card on which Holt had written: ``I find it necessary to leave for St. Louis tomorrow. Could the Prest indicate an hour this evening or night at which he would see me.'' It was probably written prior to Holt's appointment as judge advocate general, September 3, 1862.
