Lincoln writes young relative: "This side of the Rocky Mountains things appear reasonably well for the general result. In opposing David Logan, at the late Congressional election in Oregon, I suppose you did what you thought was right. . . . Still, I am sorry you did not think differently, as I knew David from his childhood, and he studied law in our office when his father and I were partners." He thanks F. E. Spinner of New York for "Bag of books." Abraham Lincoln to John T. Hanks, 24 September 1860, CW, 4:120; Abraham Lincoln to Francis E. Spinner, 24 September 1860, CW, 4:120-21.
