Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln. Volume 2.
Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.
H. C. Whitney, Esq Springfield,
My dear Sir: June 7. 1855

Your note containing election news is received; and for which I thank you. It is all of no use, however. Logan is worse beaten than any other man ever was since elections were invented---beaten more than 1200 in this county.

It is conceded on all hands that the Prohibitory law is also beaten. [2] Yours truly A. LINCOLN---
