The Writings of Abraham Lincoln, Volume 6 by Abraham Lincoln
To James Conkling. August 27, 1863.
HON. JAMES CONKLING.
MY DEAR CONKLING:--I cannot leave here now. Herewith is a letter instead. You are one of the best public readers. I have but one suggestion--read it very slowly. And now God bless you, and all good Union men.
Yours as ever,
