Exeter, NH.

Lincoln spends part of day with Robert. In evening he makes speech. He writes to Isaac Pomeroy of Newark, N.J., who invited him to address Young Men's Working Club. "I have already spoken five times, and am engaged to speak five more. By the time these engagements shall be fulfilled, I shall be so far worn down, and also will be carried so far beyond my allotted time, that an immediate return home will be a necessity with me." At this sitting he is declining invitations to Philadelphia, Reading, and Pittsburgh. Abraham Lincoln to Isaac Pomeroy, 3 March 1860, CW, 3:554; Percy C.
