Lincoln writes William A. Minshall of Rushville that Stuart will run for Congress again. Let "our friends in your parts know. . . . Write me all you know and all you think, in regard to our prospects. . . . We have adopted it as part of our policy here, to never speak of Douglass at all. Is'nt that the best mode of treating so small a matter?"Abraham Lincoln to William A. Minshall, 7 December 1837, CW, 1:107.
