Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

To Thomas Ewing [1]

Hon: Secretary of the Home Department: Springfield, Ills.
Dear Sir: April 13--- 1849

Under date of the 7th. Inst. I forwarded to you, in separate letters, recommendations that Walter Davis be Receiver, and Turner R. King Register, of the Land Office at this place. For a personal reason, of no consequence to the Department, I now wish to transpose those recommendations; so that Davis may stand for Register, and King for Receiver. Your Obt. Servt. A. LINCOLN
