Springfield, IL.

Having received another letter from Morris & Brown, Lincoln consults Logan. "If the Governor shall arrive before I leave, Logan & I will both attend to the matter," he assures them, "and he will attend to it if he does not come till after I leave; all upon the condition that the Governor shall not have acted upon the matter, before his arrival here. . . . The case is a clear one on our side; but whether the Gov. will view it so is another thing." Abraham Lincoln to Buckner S. Morris and John J. Brown, 21 October 1847, CW, 1:406.
