Lincoln writes to Henry Wilson of Massachusetts on value of political organization. In late Aug. or early Sept. Lincoln begins long reply to pamphlet by John Hill, Petersburg Democrat, entitled "Opposing principles of Henry Clay and Abraham Lincoln." Having got his own pamphlet well started as reply, he gives it up, evidently deciding that Hill's attack is not worth more of his time.
