Lincoln summarizes political developments for Trumbull. "Gov. Reeder was here last evening direct from Pennsylvania. He is entirely confident of that state, and of the general result. . . . Weed was here, and saw me; but he showed no signs whatever of the intriguer. He asked for nothing; and said N.Y. is safe, without condition." Lincoln thanks Digby V. Bell of Chicago for sending chair made from wood of all 34 states, which sat on platform at Chicago convention. Abraham Lincoln to Lyman Trumbull, 5 June 1860, CW, 4:71; Abraham Lincoln to Digby V.
