"There is a good deal of diversity among the whigs here, as to who shall be their candidate for the Presidency; but I think it will result in favor of Genl. Taylor," writes Lincoln to R. S. Thomas of Virginia, Illinois. He informs Thomas of what he has done regarding application for lieutenancy for one of his friends. He knows of nothing more he can do, for "you know I can have no intimacy with the President."Abraham Lincoln to Richard S. Thomas, 1 January 1848, CW, 1:422-23.
