Abraham Lincoln to William Brown, 22 October 18461Springfield, Octr 22. 1846Dear Judge
I have just returned from Coles, where I saw Ficklin, who handed me a note on Anthony Thornton and somebody else, with $25– in money, which he directed me to pass over to you, upon presentation of his receipt (for the note I suppose)–
I want to get the matter off of my hands– What shall be done about it?Yours trulyA. Lincoln
