Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln. Volume 1.
Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.
Dear Judge Springfield, Octr. 22. 1846

I have just returned from Coles, where I saw Ficklin, [2] who handed me a note on Anthony Thornton [3] and somebody else, with $25--- in money, which he directed me to pass over to you upon presentation of his receipt (for the note I suppose).

I want to get the matter off of my hands. What shall be done about it? Yours truly A. LINCOLN
