35. Joshua F. Speed to William H. Herndon.

Dear Sir

Enclosed you have a copy of the letter you asked for —

I see by one of Lincolns letters that he made a temperance speech which was published in the Sangamon Journal in 1842 or 3. You can probably find it I wish you would do so.

Your friend &c
J. F. Speed



1. AL's Temperance Address was delivered before the Washington Temperance Society of Springfield on February 22, 1842, and published in the Sangamo Journal on the following March 25 (CW 1:271-79).
