585. Edward L. Pierce to William H. Herndon.

Milton Mass 28 Jan '90

My dear Sir.

Yours is received

I am happy to say that I shall not disturb you in the possession of the M.S.S concerning Mr Lincoln which I sent you. — while you need them. Perhaps you might let me see proof of such parts as you may use — to avoid errors.

You will see in the "Nation" of this or next week a brief statement "Mr. Lincoln as a Colonizationalist" signed by a star which I contributed. The dates & references may serve you.

Yours truly
Edward L Pierce

You might return me my M.S.S after you have used it.
