He stands immovably on the Chicago Platform, and he will neither acquiesce in, nor counsel his friends to acquiesce in, any compromise that surrenders one iota of it." Despite Lincoln's desire for privacy there is "a perfect inundation of Chicago politicians." N.Y. Tribune, 30 January 1861.

Lincoln withdraws $25.40 from Springfield Marine Bank. Pratt, Personal Finances, 175.
