[1]   AES, CSmH. Lincoln's endorsement is written on an envelope on which appears a further endorsement not Lincoln's: ``Refiled Oct. 2. '69 for 5th. Circuit under late act of congress.'' On the other side of the envelope appears an endorsement of Henry Sherman of Hartford, Connecticut: ``Recd from Atty Gen's office July 1865. Enclosed herein was an original letter reminding him of his promise to give me a Judicial appointment, which has been mislaid.'' Sherman was employed in the Treasury Department 1861-1868.
