To John M. Palmer [1]

Hon. J. M. Palmer Springfield,
Dear Sir: Aug. 5, 1858.

Since we parted last evening no new thought has occurred to [me] on the subject of which we talked most yesterday.

I have concluded, however, to speak at your town on Tuesday, August 31st, and have promised to have it so appear in the papers of to-morrow. Judge Trumbull has not yet reached here. Yours as ever, A. LINCOLN.
