Lincoln writes to David Lincoln, of Virginia, regarding their shared family roots. David provided information that prompts Abraham to assert, "There is no longer any doubt that your uncle Abraham, and my grandfather was the same man." Abraham shares information about various uncles and he asks, "What was your grandfather's christian name? Was he not, a Quaker? About what time did he emigrate from Berks county, Pa. to Virginia? Do you know any thing of your family (or rather I may now say, our family) farther back than your grandfather?" Lincoln closes, "I shall be much pleased to hear from you again."
