Abraham Lincoln to William H. Herndon, 12 December 18471Washington, Dec. 12. 1847Dear William:
As soon as the Congressional Globe and Appendix begins to issue, I shall send you a copy of it regularly– I wish you to read it, or as much of it as you please, and be careful to preserve all the numbers, so that we can have a complete file of it
There is nothing new here, but what you see in the papers–Yours as ever.A. Lincoln
