This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 191 pages of information about Abraham Lincoln.
The “Abraham Baldwin letter” referred to in your last I regret to say has not arrived.  From your not touching the proofs in that regard, I inferred (and hope) that the correction was not itself an error.

    Should you wish a larger number of copies do not hesitate to let us
    know; it will afford us much pleasure to furnish them and no
    inconvenience whatever.

    Respectfully, etc.,

    CHARLES C. NOTT.

    Hon. A. Lincoln.

    SPRINGFIELD, ILLS., Sept. 22, 1860.

    CHARLES C. NOTT, Esq.,

    My Dear Sir

    Yours of the 17th was duly received—­The 250 copies have not yet
    arrived—­I am greatly obliged to you for what you have done, and
    what you propose to do.

The “Abraham Baldwin letter” in substance was that I could not find the Journal of the Confederation Congress for the session at which was passed the Ordinance of 1787—­and that in stating Mr. Baldwin had voted for its passage, I had relied on a communication of Mr. Greeley, over his own signature, published in the New York Weekly Tribune of October 15, 1859.  If you will turn to that paper, you will there see that Mr. Greeley apparently copies from the Journal, and places the name of Mr. Baldwin among those of the men who voted for the measure.

    Still; if the Journal itself shows differently, of course it is
    right.

    Yours very truly,

    A. LINCOLN.
