My dear Sir: Feb. 13. 1860

Your letter of the 2nd. Inst. notifying me that you had forwarded to me by the hand of Mr. Blinn, [2] a certain book on Labor & Capital, was duly received. I have not yet received the book; but I presume I shall, so soon as I shall visit Bloomington. I am much gratified by this mark of your kind remembrance. [3] I expect to be in NewYork about the 27th. Inst. when & where I shall be truly happy to meet you. Yours very truly A. LINCOLN.
