"Yours of the 2d of December was duly delivered to me by Mr. Williams," writes Lincoln to Andrew Johnston of Quincy. "I am not at all displeased with your proposal to publish the poetry, or doggerel . . . which I sent you . . . but let names be suppressed by all means. I have not sufficient hope of the verses attracting any favorable notice to tempt me to risk being ridiculed for having written them."Abraham Lincoln to Andrew Johnston, 25 February 1847, CW, 1:392.
