Lincoln writes to fellow attorney and fellow poetry aficionado Andrew Johnston, of Quincy, Illinois. Lincoln writes that he is "Feeling a little poetic this evening," and notes that he encloses a poem that Johnston had "expressed the wish to have." Lincoln asks if Johnston "would...like to see a piece of poetry of my own making?" He confides that he has "a piece that is almost done, but I find a deal of trouble to finish it."
