Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

To Richard S. Thomas [1]

Friend Thomas: Washington, June 19, 1848.

Do you know any democrats who will vote for Taylor? and if so, what are their names? Do you know any Whigs who will not vote for him? and if so, what are their names? and for whom will they vote?

Please answer this just as soon as it is received. Yours as ever
