[William H. Herndon writes to John J. Hardin in Washington: "We have had several Whig meetings in Springfield lately and they seem to have carried enthusiasm to its highest pitch.... At these `Clay Clubs' we sing old songs for `gallant Harry' and this with eloquent speaking from Logan, Lincoln and Baker You may well imagine the effect.... we have a meeting once or twice a week and we intend to keep them up till November.... I know that if you were in Morgan all would go well but I fear that the people of Morgan have lost what they are not able to replace. I know how this goes if Baker or Lincoln is missing at our meetings. It seems that something is lost." John J. Hardin Papers, Chicago History Museum, Chicago, IL.]
