Lincoln writes to fellow veteran Eli C. Blankenship, who seeks information concerning David Rankin, who served under Lincoln in the Black Hawk War. Lincoln explains, "[Isaac Guliher] being an acquaintance of mine and belonging to the company in which Rankin wished to go wished to leave it and join mine . . .
