Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

To Richard Lloyd [1]

R. Lloyd, Esq. [July, 1858?]

You see the purport of the within letter. I can do no more in the case. I think you better employ another---either Judge Logan [2] here, or Judge Purple [3] at Peoria, & let him correspond with Grimshaw4 at once. Yours truly A. LINCOLN
