Exhibit 3. Davis to Lincoln, July 5, 1864

This abstract of the Coles County case has been sent to me by Mr. Hay & I enclose it to the President.

It is I think correct. It was received since my letter to the President on the subject.

I have nothing to add to my letter of this date except that I am strengthened in the opinion that the prisoners should have been turned over to the state authorities.

David Davis
