To William H. Young [1]

W. H. Young, Esq Springfield,
Dear Sir. July 19. 1857

Mr. Herndon received yours of the 14th. addressed to him and me, and kept it for me to answer when I should return, which was only yesterday.

We are willing to be with you in the case or cases of Alies & Morrison, [2] subject to the condition, however, that I shall have toPage  412 be at Chicago during part---perhaps all---of your next term. Mr. Herndon will be on hand; and if this will do, send on the full statement of facts. Yours truly A. LINCOLN---
