Lincoln writes to Stuart giving instructions about renewing his note at state bank. Money to renew it is in hands of William Butler. He sends note signed in blank for Stuart to use. He closes with: "Ewing wont do any thing. He is not worth a damn." This probably refers to Ewing's attempt to repeal bill removing capital to Springfield.Abraham Lincoln to John T.
