[Lincoln is thinking of his campaign for Congress. In letter to John J. Hardin, Martin S. Morris of Petersburg says: "Mr. Lincoln was here at court and I discover from what he says that he wants to run for Congress. . . . He doesn't know but you will be his competitor. . . . I should like to see you in Congress again but I believe I would rather you would run for Governor now."John J. Hardin Papers, Chicago History Museum, Chicago, IL.]
