To Simeon Draper [1]

Hon. Simeon Draper Executive Mansion,
My dear Sir. Washington, Sept. 8, 1864.

Allow me to introduce Gov. W. A. Newell of New-Jersey. You know him by reputation. He and I were in congress together sixteen years ago. He is a true friend of the Union, and every way a reliable gentleman. Please hear him whenever he calls. Yours truly A. LINCOLN
