1This fragment includes only Edward D. Baker’s signature. Abraham Lincoln wrote and signed the endorsement. The document was likely enclosed in a letter from Lincoln to Peter Hagner regarding the claims of Dr. Argyle W. Furr. The two documents have become separated and are now located in different repositories.
