To H. C. Whitney.
 

SPRINGFIELD, June 7, 1855.
H. C. WHITNEY, ESQ.

MY DEAR SIR:--Your note containing election news is received; and for which I thank you. It is all of no use, however. Logan is worse beaten than any other man ever was since elections were invented--beaten more than twelve hundred in this county. It is conceded on all hands that the Prohibitory law is also beaten.

Yours truly,
A. LINCOLN.
