Lincoln writes to William M. Dickson, who is married to Mary Lincoln's cousin. Lincoln asks Dickson, of Cincinnati, Ohio, to investigate a bill Lincoln received from the proprietors of Cincinnati's Burnet House, where Lincoln stayed in September 1859, as a guest of Ohio Republicans. Lincoln explains, "I . . . was . . . told the bill 'was settled' 'was all right' or words to that effect. . . . I can and will pay it if it is right; but I do not wish to be 'diddled!['] Please do what you do quietly, having no fuss about it." William M. Dickson to Abraham Lincoln, 21 May 1860; Johnson & Saunders Co. to Abraham Lincoln, 5 June 1860, both in Abraham Lincoln Papers, Library of Congress, Washington, DC; Abraham Lincoln to William M.
