To John Hogan [1]

Friend Hogan: Washington, July 14- 1848-

Soon after I received yours I went personally to the Genl. Land Office, for the information you desired. Judge Young [2] took a memorandum, and promised to do what he could. Last night hePage  500 sent me what accompanies this, which I suppose is all the information can be had.

Taylorism seems to be going right, for which, I am very glad. Keep the ball rolling. Yours as ever A. LINCOLN
