To Jesse W. Fell 
Your kind letter of the 7th. Feb: enclosing a petition for peace, was received a day or two ago. I shall present it at the proper time.
It now seems to be understood on all hands that the war is over---that the treaty sent in will be ratified.
Page 455I will try to get the time to write you a longer letter soon; but I am really too much hurried to do so now. Yours as ever,
J. W. Fell A. LINCOLN.
