Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln. Volume 1.
Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

To William Schouler [1]

Friend Schooler: Washington, Aug: [8?] 1848


I am remaining here for two weeks to frank documents. Now that the Presidential candidates are all set, I will thank you for your undisguised opinion as to what New England generally, and Massachusetts particularly will do. Your opinion as to the nomination of Taylor held so good, that I have some confidence in your predictions. Very truly yours A. LINCOLN
