To Daniel A. Cheever [1]

D. A. Cheever, Esq., Springfield,
Dear Sir: Aug. 11, 1858.

I have had my last Springfield speech printed in pamphlet form, and now send you 250 of them. If you find them useful, more of them can be had by writing here. Address J. O. Johnson, [2] of this place, as I shall be absent after today. Yours as ever,
