Springfield, Ill. Dec. 9,1859

 

L. L. Jones, Esq

 

My dear Sir:

 

Your kind invitation to me to visit Lawrence, was handed me at Leavenworth on Saturday the 3rd Inst.  I was advertized to speak there that evening and also on Monday the 5th; so that it was not possible for me to be at Lawrence before, or at, the election – I supposed there was not sufficient object for me to go after the election, through the excessive cold –

 

Please present my respects, and make my acknowledgments, to the other gentlemen, who joined you in the invation, and accept the same for yourself –

 

Very truly yours

 

A. Lincoln
