Jesse A. Pickrell Esq. Springfield, Sept. 15, 1856

My dear Sir:

Will you please make out and send me, as soon as you can, a list of fifteen or twenty names of good steady Fillmore men, round about you. Let them be scattered about in the neighborhoods, with the Post-Office of each indicated. I want to send letters to them. Please do this quietly, and say nothing about it. Your friend as ever

A. LINCOLN

P.S. Send to Springfield
