"The news we are receiving here now from all parts is on the look-up," writes Lincoln to William Schouler. From Ohio particularly comes news of great enthusiasm for Taylor. Lincoln has received no particulars from his own district but attributes Logan's defeat to the fact that Major Harris, his opponent, is popular by reason of his war service. "That there is any political change against us in the district I cannot believe."Abraham Lincoln to William Schouler, 28 August 1848, CW, 1:518-19.
