Washington, DC.

From Washington, D. C., Congressman Lincoln writes to his wife Mary Lincoln, and explains, "Enclosed is the draft as I promised you in my letter of sunday. It is drawn in favor of your father, and I doubt not, he will give you the money for it at once. I write this letter in the post-office, surrounded by men and noise, which, together with the fact that there is nothing new, makes me write so short a letter." Abraham Lincoln to Mary Todd Lincoln, 24 May 1848, CW, 1:473-74.
