Springfield, IL.

Lincoln writes Artemas Hale, Massachusetts Whig, his opinion of Fremont's prospects in Illinois and Indiana. Opposition to Buchanan is undoubtedly in majority in both states, but division between Fremont and Fillmore "places both states in some danger." He thinks danger greater in Illinois than Indiana, and hopes some way may be found of inducing Fillmore men not to throw away their votes. He tells B. Clarke Lundy of Putnam County that prior engagement prevents acceptance of speaking invitation. Abraham Lincoln to Artemas Hale, 28 July 1856, CW, 2:356; Abraham Lincoln to B. Clarke Lundy and Others, 28 July 1856, CW, 2:356-57.
