Writing Stuart, Lincoln says: "The Locos have no candidates on the track yet, except Dick Taylor for the Senate. Last saturday he made a speech, and May answered him. The way May let the wind out of him, was a perfect wonder. The court room was verry full, and neither you nor I ever saw a crowd in this county so near all on one side." Abraham Lincoln to John T. Stuart, 26 March 1840, CW, 1:208.
