Lincoln writes Browning detailed account of election results. "Yates is beaten from 100 to 150. The whole thing was done in Morgan & Scott counties; in all the rest of the District we did better then we expected. . . . We now understand here that Mr. Williams is beaten also. Schuyler and Brown are said to have played thunder. . . . It looks as if Anti Nebraska will have the H. R—the Senate doubtful." Abraham Lincoln to Orville H. Browning, 12 November 1854, CW, 2:286-87.
