Memorandum Concerning James Hughes [1]

October 20, 1864

I am willing that any case, that of Judge Hughes as well as another, if coming within the precedent of what I call the Johnson case, may go as the Johnson case did. I really desire that Judge Hughes shall be obliged. A. LINCOLN

Oct. 20, 1864.
