Hon. S. A. Douglas: Springfield,
Dear Sir July 31. 1858.

Yours of yesterday, naming places, times, and terms, for joint discussions between us, was received this morning. Although, by the terms, as you propose, you take four openings and closes to my three, I accede, and thus close the arrangement. I direct this to you at Hillsboro; and shall try to have both your letter and this, appear in the Journal and Register of Monday morning. Your Obt. Servt. A. LINCOLN---
