Abraham Lincoln to Henry E. Dummer, 2 January 18441Springfield, Jany 2. 1844Friend Dummer:
In reply to yours of the 14th ult.2 I say that if you can get a clear title to the 40 acres of land, together with costs, and a reasonable fee to yourself, I reckon you had better do it– Have the deed made to me–Yours as ever–A. Lincoln
