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

To William H. Young [1]

W. H. Young: Washington,
Dear Sir: Aug: 28 1848

Your letter enquiring after land warrants has been received, and I have left it with the Commissioner of Pensions, with a special request, in writing that he attend to it, and write you. You will hear from him before long.

As to the three months extra pay; Pay-masters are to go round and pay it to the volunteers in their respective vicinities. Advertisements will go in advance of them, and no forms are necessary, as I understand it. Yours truly A LINCOLN
