Springfield, IL.

Lincoln writes two important letters. One is to T. J. Henderson, member of House from Stark County, asking for his vote in senatorial election. Other is to Ichabod Codding, asking by what authority he (Lincoln) has been placed on Republican state central committee. He writes Elihu N. Powell of Peoria that, as Powell advised, he declines to serve as representative. He stood for election only to help Yates. Abraham Lincoln to Thomas J.
