To Jediah F. Alexander 
My dear Sir Aug. 2. 1858.
I should be with Judge Douglas at your town on the 4th. had he not intimated in his published letter, that my presence would be considered an intrusion. I shall soon publish a string of appointments following his present track, which will bring me to Greenville about the 11th. of Sept. I hope to have Judge Trumbull with me. Yours truly A. LINCOLN
